Has this been noticed before

Just noticed this, in the RB11 rules:

WC3.
RACE BOATS:
3.1
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?

Good spot!

The 2010 UIM rule book has it right >>

Clearly the chap that wrote PB1 made a faux pas!

I e-mailed the RYA pointing out that mistake, + some other funnies too.
Reply informed me it would have to wait until next UIM agm or similar, I seem to remember !

Quite obviously a mis-type, & would assume everyone would realise what was intended.

I am guessing that 24ft is indeed the MINIMUM length !!
