Having listened to all the arguments both for & against the adoption of a larger spinnaker and taking into account the views expressed at a number of Competitor Forums over the last 4 or so years, together with the votes received from a good number of the National Secretaries it was obvious that the majority of the members were overwhelmingly against the proposal. Your General Committee has therefore decided that it is in the best interests of the Class not to change our rules to allow for a larger spinnaker. We also agreed that the subject is now closed and will not be reopened for discussion or reconsideration for at least 5 years.
I would just like to thank everyone for their contribution to the debate and a special thanks to Konig Sails for making some prototype sails for testing and to those sailors that spent time testing them on the water.
