Has this been noticed before
Just noticed this, in the RB11 rules:
HULL LENGTH - UIM 1200.3.1
The maximum hull length for all competing craft is 24ft / 7.32 meters and the maximum for all is 50ft / 15.20 metres using UIM standard measurement procedure. See Class classifications. A diagram is available from the Organisers for clarification. Grandfather clause: Any boat that took part in the Round Britain 08 or Cowes/Torquay/Cowes08 will be allowed under this 3-year clause until the end of 2011.
Should this be pointed out, to the race organisers?
