Replying to:RL 24 Class Rules
Bernie Which version of the class rules will we be using at the National titles in Paynesville? This RL web site only has the 1989 version of the class rule on display! The current 1992 version has a rather silly and highly irregular appendix 3 which restricts swing keel RL 24ís from modifying the as originally constructed centreboard box when racing in a RL24 class event! You will note that there is no grandfather clause in appendix 3! All I did in the early eighties was to fit the wider and heavier mark 2 keel to my mark 1. This work along with a filler / keel lockdown device (fitted through a hatch in the top of the raised box) improved my boats performance and also made her much easier to handle in the heavier breezes. Alastair Para Handy Appendix 3 AT RL24 CLASS REGATTAS I. Swing keel division shall be restricted to yachts whose centre cases are as originally constructed prior to 1992 and that no device be fitted to close the centre case slot. II. Keels shall not be lifted beyond a point which leaves exposed 600 mm vertical depth of keel, and that a locking device be fitted to prevent raising beyond this point.
