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”
