Proposed wording:

3 (d) x. “Builder supplied” Vang cleating fitting
a) the vang cleat block may be replaced with a “builder supplied” vang cleating fitting which incorporates “turning points” and a cam cleat.
A list of approved vang cleating units can be found on the ILCA website. a
[Images are proposed to be removed in the rules.]
Removable parts that wear may be replaced with parts of equivalent function (e.g., fairleads, cleats) b

Benefit:

a As additional approved vangs are approved, they may be introduced by the builders and class without delay. There is adequate room for graphics, supplier and part specification details on the web site.

b Clarification to make it clear that parts that wear may be replaced.


------------------------------------------------------

Item one: minor and self-evident.

Item two: smart move that should have been made 21 years ago. Now it remains to be defined in practice what "equivalent function" of replacement parts means...

Question: does "As additional approved vangs are approved" [sic] mean that NEW vang cleating fittings are being developed :) Ronstan...?
