I've been attempting to get up to date with the new edition of the Racing Rules and find that Appendix E3.8(d) modifies the Racing Rule 32.1(b) to "because of foul weather or thunderstorms."

Racing Rule 32.1(b) says "because of insufficient wind etc.

The Radio Sailing appendix does away with that wording: is that right?

and the emergency fix changes the reference to RRS 32.1.a

This emergency fix corrects the problem and 31.(b) remains to cover the drifter.
