As a fleet we may seem relaxed about enforcement of the rules, but the reality is as a class we all adhere to the rules very well.

Last year we weighed, inspected, and measured, the top 4 boats from the 2014 nationals and the season champions. All the boats measured, without any issues.

Our class measurers are very knowledgeable and diligent. They do spot inspections through out the year and in particular at nationals. If you cheat they will notice or somebody else will. They will politely tell you to fix it, everyone does.

Quantum, North, Pineapple, and Santa Cruz sails all make great sails for the fleet and they have been wighing in properly for years. They won't get it wrong unless you tell them to make a cheater sail.

Have fun, go fast, live the dream.


:: Hi Gerry,

:: to be addressed and just factored it in. You got to pay
