    2011 Rule Changes - Fundamental Rule

    Thank you Grouvernail and Tillerman, you have shed light! My first reaction after reading the letter to the class yesterday was why side with a builder who does not have, or is not willing to pay in the future, for rights.

    bailer area repair

    Thank you so much. Your fix makes lots of sense, and if i had to do it again would use that method. FYI, I did the repair before your reply. I planned on using cloth, but when the time came I did not have any, and the store was closed. Since my biggest problem was the hole arond the brass...

    Spar stifness - England

    Back during the 2002 Worlds in Hyannis it seemed everyone showed up with spas from England and they stood out because they were black. Ive not seen them much since 02. DOes anyone know if these mast and boom sections are stiffer than what we see in the States, and where they can be purchased?
