Class Rules Update

The Vaurien Class Rules have been updated by World Sailing. The most recent rules and an overview over the changes can be found here.

The most significant change is the opening of the headsail rules to use laminate materials similar to what we have in the mainsail since 2013.

And as a remark: If you are wondering why the diagrams of our rigg and sails is missing: This was a request by World Sailing. Their new rules policy wants to avoid any double definition of measurements. Since we are following the Equipment Rules of Sailing (ERS) for all definitions, and this ERS includes the definition of sail and measurements (and many more), we were asked not to repeat this in our rules. Therefore the diagrams are now gone. We will work on a “Measurers’ Handbook” where these diagrams will be added.
