INTERPRETATIONS OF THE OFFICIAL SPECIFICATIONS BY THE TECHNICAL COMMITTEE
Effective May 31, 2020
F. Runner Base and Cut (Track)
3/12/2007: Measuring F.2: In order to make repeatable measurements of runner cut as intended by this Specification the following methods should be used:
- Rigging should not be tight during measurement. The skipper must be allowed to loosen the rigging as required to relieve static tension.
- Sailor should be wearing normal racing attire, including helmet, goggles, etc.
- Mainsheet must be loose.
- The runners must be allowed to move. If on the ice, the boat may be pushed to allow the runners to seek a neutral position. If using a measurement fixture, the device must allow free sideways movement of the runners.
- The skipper should be in the cockpit in normal sailing position (lying in the cockpit with his shoulders against the seatback).
