March 4, 2018

7:00 pm

Class Review

J 29 all versions - Fran Doyle, Rochester District.

Concern was raised that the standard application of +6 sec/nm (for Inboard versions) may not be appropriate for all classes.

Discussion included the need to analyze this across all classes as deviating from this may cause a ripple effect.

Motion to adjust +6 to J 29 MH IB (from 108 to 114) and 7/8 IB (from 111 to 117). M/S. Fran/Bill. Defeated with only 2 in favour.

Motion to adjust +3 to J 29 MH IB (from 108 to 111) and 7/8 IB (from 111 to 114). M/S. Fran/Adam. Carried with 3 in favour.

Motion to leave all other classes (in this category) until the March 25th meeting. M/S. Fran/John. Carried

No other items where to be discussed.

Meeting adjourned at 8:30 pm

Currently being reviewed!

We have asked Jim Teeters (US Sailing Offshore office) to analyze the effect of different keel configurations.

Our hope is to better assess the speed effect of different keels within versions of the same class.

Ready for the 2014 season!
