    Grass Roots Sailing ILCA Support

    Ooh! Great ideas Wavedancer! What a way to grow the US ILCA, with a free membership tier! In the past I have had the thought that the only benefit of class membership (for me personally) was the publication. I thought of it as a quarterly magazine subscription.

    Grass Roots Sailing ILCA Support

    If the class secretary would reach out to them, every once in a while, do some research and publish their findings (more than an email that goes to spam), or at least keep a record of what is actually going on in the area and follow up, that may help. Seed money for the regional regattas (no...

    2017 Class Rule changes:

    Lesson learned: even the best sailors do very stupid things which no one should blindly copy. I don't know about you LaLi, but velcro-ing a compass to the Laser, is something I would not stand behind. ;)

    2017 Class Rule changes:

    I have to disagree here, the Tac-Tick has two faces, so one should be visible from either gybe. My concern would be the Cunningham and outhaul fouling with it. However, a properly designed mast bracket would alleviate that. A mast mount would benefit light air sailing. Getting the compass off...

    2017 Class Rule changes:

    Does anyone have any ideas about rigging the hikingstrap now that the rule has changed? Can we mount the tac-tick on the mast? Or are we going to have to re-write the new rule to allow that?
