An experimental clew tie-down sleeve

Thread starter #1
In a thread titled "World Council's heavy hands" in this forum, I had written:

After consultation of the parties, it is now decided to go ahead and publish this article on "drLaser".

"JC Tie-down Sleeve", an article about the re-engineered clew tie-down fitting designed by John Christianson is now made available in the "Class & Racing Rules" and "Maintenance" sections of the drLaser web site.

It's just the facts. No politics. No bitching!

The article is for ILCA Members only! Your sensitivity to any intellectual property made public in this article will be appreciated. I'm sure the designer would also appreciate any private or public comments from Laser Class Members.
