As a new owner I plan on purchasing a higher-tech main and passing on a Dacron one. The main reasoning is there isn't a local fleet (that I'm aware of) for OD here on Cape Cod so I'll be doing PHRF. I would like to go to OD events, but they would be rare occasions.

One argument for easing the restrictions on the material would be lowering the barrier for someone like me to attend a OD event. The restriction is going to prevent me from going to any OD events since I won't be getting a Dacron main.

As an aside, where's the closest OD fleet to me?
