From my recollection at the '07 Nationals Skipper's meeting, shykites would be OK for class races scheduled beyond Pt. Bonita, but that specialty kites like reachers would not. Few opinions were that it would lead to a cost prohibitive arms race. Those people wishing to use the specialty kites could still race under their regular PHRF. Is my recollection correct? Help me out here, guys! But yes, nothing as been added to the written rules yet.
