Another Quick Rule Update

We have had the following message from the rules committee this evening. Updated Class Rules on the Class Documents page

“It has become evident that the latest casting of the DragonForce 65 keel bulb has has a much smaller diameter and depth of bolt hole in the base. This is a result of Joysway having to produce a new mould to address an issue with bolt length. Unwittingly and out of a desire to improve quality they adjusted the hole size without realising the class rule implication regarding covering the hole with a sticker. This was a genuine oversight, but has resulted in a smaller hole but the average weight remains the same and within factory tolerance. As these bulbs are already in circulation it seemed sensible to continue with the new design and change the class rules (new version 1.5) to allow the bolt hole to be covered with a sticker. The new wording of Rule D.4 does make it clear that hiding additional ballast weight behind this sticker is a clear contravention of Rules A.5 and A.5. The new Rule Version 1.5 comes into immediate effect”

Issued by the DragonForce Rules Committee on 28th October 2015

Class Rules Update

Since the last set of rules were written and posted back in February 2014 there have been several questions and queries that have been asked and answered by the rules committee who have now got to a point where these items have been incorporated into an updated set of class rules.

Essentially the restricted class rules remain unchanged but there have been a couple of updates to rules C4 and G3 to cover newer production boats, a change to rule F7 to allow any bowsie to be used instead of just the Joysway supplied bowsie and an addition to section H to allow and define the use of telltales and wind indicators.

Check out the updated rules on the Class Documents page.
