    Racing Compass - Attachment Point/Legality

    BB, you have a lot more experience than me on this one. Maybe the World Council will make this a clear-cut issue before the North Americans here in Charleston next month? Thanks for your thoughts.

    Racing Compass - Attachment Point/Legality

    Hello, Beldar. Thanks so much for your input. Are you aware of the rule sometime before 2015 that specifically forbade "digital compass[es]?" I can look it up/search it if you are not familiar. And would you agree that the 2015 rules - which I understand are the current rules - do not...

    Racing Compass - Attachment Point/Legality

    All, thanks for our quick thoughts. I have two strikes agains me - first, I've been in the class for only 14 months; second, I'm a trial attorney. I'm aware that the rules USED to state that digital compasses were NOT allowed . . . THEN the 2015 rules/amendments came out and they state only...

    Racing Compass - Attachment Point/Legality

    Plan on using the T061 Tacktick Microcompass as the NAs. I have a velcro mount set up for it to attach to the mast, but our rules direct that compasses be attached to the deck. Any thoughts on whether I can legally attach it to the mast? (Yes, I have a plan B - deck mount already purchased -...

    Daily Sail Inventory - Switching Sails Day to Day

    The 2019 rules require four sails on board - mainsail, Genoa, jib and spinnaker. For a three day regatta, must I use the same four sails? For example, if there is a blow forecast for the first day of a three day regatta, I would prefer to place my 135 headsail on board instead of the 150. The...

    J24 Easy Adjustment Turnbuckle/Handle

    OK, I wish I was not so dumb. Got my third J24 about six weeks ago. It has the original open turnbuckles. I ordered the fast adjustment turnbuckle/handle for the four shrouds and, you guessed it, those turnbuckle handles do not fit the original turnbuckles. So I ordered four fast-adjustable...

    3-Loop Bridle

    I'm only one year into the class, but my understanding is that both bridles - the two-loop and the three-loop - are both still legal and being used. No?

    Changing Rudder Pivot Point

    I posted the original question - and it looks like nobody has yet followed the new ?rule? regarding the rudder. Again, I"m new to the class - must World Sailing approve the new rule before us Sunfish racers implement it on our boats? Has anybody on here modified their rudder to comply with the...

    Changing Rudder Pivot Point

    Hello All, I'm still new in the class and read the Dec. 8 newsletter. It appears to me that the new "ruling" is that we can change the rudder pivot point to bring the leading edge closer to the hull - and therefore better pointing? And smoother flow across the rudder causing more lift? Has...

    Digital Compass

    Thanks so much for the reference to the sunfish newsletter, it answers the question with no doubt - electronic compasses are now allowed if the compass uses ONLY magnetic input and not input from another source. That nullifies my ProStart and the hockey pucks that I use on keel boats. Thanks!

    Digital Compass

    I'm still new to the class, having raced my first regatta this past March in Panama City. Rules question: the Rules allow for two compasses and the Rules also prohibit electronic navigation aids. Is an electronic compass, e.g., a digital compass, class legal?
