Cutting a slot in a carbon mast

Recommended Posts

The easy answer is to just do your own thing. But you can't. If your boat sits on a trailer and is not a sport boat you have no choice but to comply with the nztya rules or you can't even go and race in a mixed fleet. No other type of boat in Nz is tied to the type association in this manner. Keelboats , multihulls and sportboats, even dinghies do not write their own rules and then insist on personally inspecting every boat and rejecting those they feel don't meet their agenda

You cant call yourself a keel yacht with a lifting keel?

Handicap issues arise there though if it were possible . 

In distance races DP in the right conditions would be duking it out with the captains of industry in their super expensive 40 ftrs . Great fun for him but a massive imbalance of the scales
