If folks want to get really crazed over it, people with the new blades will likely be told to leave them home (or in their car and to buy/borrow a woodie), and that the published rules fully stand
1. Why is a class officer speculating that people who have purchased rudders from Vanguard (who say they are legal) and that comply with the class rules as currently written may not be allowed to use those rudders in the North Americans?
2. Of course the published rules fully stand. And they say that any rudder supplied by the manufacturer that complies with the measurement diagram (evn if it has been modified in ways allowed by the rule) is legal.
I suppose a restriction on not using the new rudders could be written into the NOR or SIs. Is it really the intention of the class or Lewes YC to impose such a restriction? Those of us contemplating buying a new rudder - and the folks who already have one - need some clarity on this please.
