why is the laser so strict about rigging? why should it matter it a guy has a 40:1 purchase on his vang, or where he gets his blocks from? Why cant the hull, spars, and sail, and blades be the only controlled factor? we should be able to rig any way we want, you cant generate a speed advantage because of your downhaul, or outhaul, or mainsheet! whats the big deal? Finns, Naples Sabots, 2.4 meters, Santana 20's, tones of boats have controlled hulls, spars, blades and such, but are free reign on rigging, and they seem to be doing great!
