But as with many things - you need to understand how it works if you are going to improve it.
Certainly I hope this limit is raised or better defined to give more scope.
Fair enough although I don't represent anyone - just my team. As this is a public free forum it's a place for discussing issues although this probably isn't the thread for it!
As with anything raised on here that effects me and my team I raise that issues directly with whoever I can to resolve it - I have contacted the RYA and have been told that they are trying to at least add a direction caveat to the wind limit, there was no mention at all of a raising of the limit unless you know better as you have better connections to officialdom? Who else could I contact about this? You obviously have information I don't?
Of course we agree that the limit isn't in the remotely bit sensible and will not help the race, as I said before it is a big issue for me as I don't want to tow my boat to the SOF and I'm absolutely certain most if not all teams would agree with me on that point!
Happy New Year!
