Replying to:CBH increase for FBM
My club handicapper wants to apply a penalty for having a full batten main (FBM). Under the new ATYSBA rules of July 2017, there is a penalty for a FBM if it is not considered in the class CBH. I was told that the existing class CBH was registered on a total batten length of 7980mm and that my new (current spec) main having a batten length of 8800mm meant I had to accept the penalty, making the new CBH for an RL24DK 767. All arguments that FBM is standard in the class have so far failed. Anyone else had this happen. Any thoughts? This has implications for the entire drop-keel fleet as it essentially means we will all move from 760 to 767. This looks like a back-door attempt to increase the CBH of our fleet.
