I just looked and this topic has the most views of any on the J/30 Forum
. Much time has passed since Russ posted in 2008, and we have enjoyed having Wildcat at the NAs in New Orleans in 2012 and Barrington in 2013.
Now for the question / continuation of this thought Russ proposed.
Does the class want to:
1. Keep the main sail restriction "as-is" with Dacron.
2. Update the class rules to allow any Woven material (e.g. the main I tried from Hood Sails with Vectron threads woven in the fibers)
3. Remove the restriction on mainsail materials.
When you post your response, please provide the rationale for your decision.
