Mini Yacht doubts

Postby ruotenelvento » Thu Jun 16, 2011 10:19 am

Hi there,

FISLY Mini Yachts will be one of the racing Class adopted in Italy. Some sailors here are starting to build or modify their yacht to fit in.

I wish to know:
- how to apply the 5.60 rule, if there's a precise way for measurement
- is a Seagull Standart' like mast (circular mast plus cambers in the zip pocket) allowed? Someone think about a wing section only looking at a Class 2 or 3 yacht...

I've tried to summarize MY rules here http://ruotenelvento.wordpress.com/2011 ... miniyacht/, I hope I got it right, any suggestion very welcome.

Thank you

Cheers - Enrico

Enrico
you apply the 5.6 rule by making a loop of rope to that size if your yacht fits in it complies
no wing masts standard mast and luff pocket in sail

We are running a second miniyacht regatta this year in the UK see http://www.kentlandyachting.com/regatta

Hope this helps

Hiya
What thickness of 5.6 metre rope is to be used?
As this obviously makes a difference to the measurement

Good Q Joolz-
Ans.Not specified - but I suppose a piece of string or cord becomes a rope after about 6-8mm - !!

Cant imagine using more than 10mm

More than 10 mm does not bring a jauge problem, I think !
The thing to know is how thin the 5.60 m rope can be... ;)

Most countries are using a 10mm rope for the loop - we also use 10mm in Ireland

I guess 10mm makes sense
As that is a typical sheet rope thickness
