Class rules
On 28 April 2018 owners approved a new edition of class rules based on the World Sailing standard template. After correcting a small number of errors and omissions discovered during 2018 a stable new edition was published on 6th January 2019.  This has been updated with rule changes agreed at the 2020 AGM and re-published as the 2021-2022 version.
