Now that the Laser finally has a vang that works a downhaul that can be adjusted while hiking and an outhaul that can be adjusted without flipping over, isn't it time to allow Laser sailors to put the rudder down all the way?
How does one go about proposing a rule change?
All you need to do is file a little grove in the head of the rudder where it contacts the front of the rudder head. No new rudder or redesign required. Add a simple rule that states the rudder cant go under the boat to limit the amount of rudder rake.
