Dear Fleet member,
A question has arisen re the removal for racing of a luff rod spar previously included in a boat’s fundamental measure and any subsequent check measures.
The previous CR 1994/7 is now superseded by 2016 IRSA A, class so the question has been directed to IRSA technical team chair Graham Bantock who kindly produced a detailed Q & A. A further Q & A was produced to specifically list both mandatory and optional equipment.
The summary conclusions are now both posted on IRSA’s site https://www.radiosailing.org/irsa-intern/question-answers/questionandanswers
Top of the left hand Q & A column. I understand the full versions detailing the argument and evidence from the CR will be posted in due course.
