WCR 61.1 (a)
The International Jury presented a fact-based analysis of WCR 61.1 (a) proposing to delete the rule at future championships. The room unanimously agreed and the Class will run future international events without the requirement of informing the Race Committee about the intention to protest.
The reports from tests of the proposed 5.0 sail were discussed. As the reports were in part negative it was agreed the Class will relaunch the project opting for a design in monofilm.
