Having started this debate as I thought that the forum had gone very quiet, I thought I ought to join in.
I looks like the jib furler proposal is a non starter – no one seems to be supporting that one.
With regard to the numbers on the sponnaker, I really, really hope that no one protests anyone at the Inland Nationals because they don’t have sail numbers of their spinnaker. That would be completely unsporting in my opinion.
We have an EXCOMM telephone conference meeting on Tues 3rd June and Mike and I will table it for discussion there (we do have a functioning democracy – unlike the House of Commons – working away behind the scenes).
