Been there, done that, was it the AGM of 2003 or maybe 2004? I think I can pretty well predict what the members are going to vote, don’t waste too much of your energy on it.

A carbon pole for a Wayfarer still is more then twice as expensive as its alloy counterpart, enough reason to ban carbon for the time being IMHO. Keeping the Wayfarer affordable has always been an important motive for members to vote against carbon spars. The Wayfarer already is an expensive boat compared to some of her competitors. If you always want the latest and greatest, and you the have money to spend, you are in the wrong class.
