Mainsail Penalties and Credit for 2017 Season

E-mail Print PDF

Central Council held a meeting on November 19th and passed a motion to modify the Mainsail Penalties and Credits.

Two motions where passed:

1. Motion to change the “scale” by which mainsail size penalties and credits are based.

  • The current 100 to 103% standard sail (non-penalty) area will be moved to 98 to 101.9%. To correct credits given to some boats for marginally smaller sails below 100%.

2. Motion to modify Penalties and Credits associated with Scale listed in 1 above.

  • The current adjustment of 1 sec/nm for every 1% change in sail size was increased to 2 sec/nm for every 3% change in size. It was felt that this was a more appropriate proportion change.
