Replying to:Asymmetric Spinnaker question
A question for the RL association and class racers. If the RL24 is a development class, why haven't the class allowed asymmetric spinnakers? I have seen a RL24 with a bowsprit/pole and an asymmetric spinnaker and was told it was not possible to use it in the class racing. Clearly the development was practical, relatively cheap (for the performance gain) and capable of helping the RL24 stay competitive with more modern sports boats in mixed fleet racing. I realise this would need a remeasurement of the class. Since its a development class, boats should be continually measured as a part of scrutiny so another change and measurement should not be a big issue. That is the fun of running a development class.
