J/80 Class Rules Proposals Approved

The proposed J/80 Class Rule Amendments, previously approved by the J/80 Class Association in June 2017, have formally been adopted by World Sailing and now posted on their website. These rules are in effect immediately for all class racing.

The approved proposals were:

1. Increasing the maximum crew weight to 350kg.

2. Permitting the installation and use of video and still cameras and their associated mounting hardware.

3. Permitting the addition of a fiberglass  backstay flicker on the mast crane to help the backstay clear the mainsail.

4. Updating all references of "ISAF" to "World Sailing."
