Mini Yacht doubts

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

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
