Quentin has been in dicussion with the Hartleys and reported back to the ExComm telephone conference at the beginning of June.

Richard and Mark don’t like stitching numbers on spinnakers, but have found a way to stencil the numbers onto the sail. They are doing this on all new boats from now, and will stencil numbers onto sails they have sold without numbers (admittedly easier said than done, given they are based in Derby).

I will ask them to bring their stencilling kit to Falmouth!

Excomm decided it has no position on numbers on spinnaker. If a member decides to put a proposal for a rule change to AGM, then a free vote will be held.
