Replying to:I am confused
Please look at the fabulous photo of Simon Walsh’s Rl24 Ohau-rua beating to windward in this months Australian Sailing magazine (page 29). I have to ask, is the person in the red lifejacket hiking out as per the rl24 class rules? Surely this person has past the mid thigh limit? If I am wrong and this form of hiking is legal, is this the way for the RL 24 class to go and is it good for the image of the RL 24 class and trailer yacht racing? I ask you to now have a look in the ‘Sail Port Stephens’ segment in the same magazine (page 5) and have a look at the photo of the Melges 24. It’s a very popular international sportsboat and it has what I refer to as ‘pensioner perches’ and this means that one does not need to have a few Olympic athletes on board a trailer yacht when the wind kicks in?
