I suppose you need an open face to accomodate those pint glass bottoms yoe wear as specs

I do totally agree though Scott, it is nearly June!

Does anyone know for sure if this ruling applies to basic (club) races this year?

Cheers, James

Helmets

Was slightly hoping this would come up tonight -

I spoke to JP about it today -

Seems like .... if your OOD lectures competitors in race briefing the difference between open & full face lids - it is then up to the competitor to make a choice.

I have emailed him for clarification in writing - but perhaps by then I will be looking after Cowes - The Centenary.

Well if you're working to the 2010 PB1, which you should if under the RYA unberella, rule F28 notes
'unless otherwise stated at the briefing, ful face protective helmets must be worn by all persons on board at any time the boat is on the plane including the journey to and from race, during practice or testing'
No mention of other types of helmets!!!

no good for canopied boats with escape air systems I'd have thought

Looks like if you "State at Briefing" open face are acceptable that should be ok !!

Hmmm brave OOD? I presume V24 run under UIM rules as they are full canopy class?

Not very helpful for competitors with a roof - they will have to buy full face helmets to wear in case the OOD isn't brave enough to stick his neck on the chopping block - because that's what it will be like!

Rule does not apply to Marathon class !! Although it is in the Race Instruction Template !! Therefore I assume organisers could remove it from RI for Marathon.

Bob

6.1
PROTECTIVE HELMETS - UIM 1200.6.1
Protective helmets are to be worn by all persons on board at any time when the boat is on the plane during the journey to and from the race and during racing and practising or testing. Protective helmets may be removed when undertaking repairs providing the boat is off the plane. Protective helmets must be orange in colour and have temple protection. Helmets must have the boat‟s race number on the top, painted in black and minimum height of 7.5cm.
Helmets must be devoid of dents or splits and any modifications must not
