Class Rules Proposal - Ruling 15 on Head Foils

Since the previous MainBrace issue, the Rules Committee has been working on a rules change proposal designed to increase participation. The change, posted here and in the Fall 2023 MainBrace (10/1/23) for membership feedback, would permit the use of roller furlers with head foils in the Silver Fleet. Head foils would still be prohibited in the Gold Fleet. Many potential racers with cruising furlers are not class legal under the current rule. This change would permit those boats to compete, open some events to additional entries, and plant the seeds for future growth. Membership feedback is part of the rules change process in the class rules, so please review the proposal from the committee and let us know your opinion.

C22NSA members may provide feedback to Chief Measurer David Hayslip no later than December 1, 2023.
