Aren't you even a little embarrassed to have a 144 rating for a class legal J/30?

Did the rating change when the class allowed string head sails?

I'd bet that the year the sail material is changed (if it happens) you could go out, buy your new sails, sign the ODR compliance document and smile all the way out to the race course. You shouldn't even have to announce it

Still, where's the 6 second penalty when not ODR Compliant Normal PHRF penalties = 9 seconds

3 seconds for the head sail
3 seconds for the pole
3 seconds for the kite

Why should I be embarrassed, I'm not the one sailing handicap? Now isn't complaining about 3 seconds a mile in PHRF reserved for the club bar? Honestly I'd know zero about PHRF except I was asked to do a tour of duty at CBYRA and it was unavoidable.

My mother always told me that if I had to explain my jokes I didn't belong in comedy.

I'm a bit confussed, isn't Pentex approved for J30 Mains, and aren't Pentex sails "String Sails" ?

If I've done this right, I am attaching a picture of a J-30 Sail made from Pentx that I am told is Class Legal.

The stipulation is that it is woven ply (PEN or PET), not laminate. String sails are laminates.

5.12.1.2 Mainsail shall be manufactured from woven ply polyethylene terephthalate ("PET"), such as Dacron®, or woven ply polyethylene naphthalate ("PEN"), such as Pentex®. The spinnaker shall be manufactured from woven ply nylon.

The picture you show would not be a legal main under the current rules.

The photo does not look like an approved woven fabric.
for sure.

OK, I just ordered my new f#*@ing Dacron Main for delivery in September.
I think I figured it out, Bob must own stock in a Dacron cloth manufacturer... smile

God willing, we'll see y'all in N'Orleans in October

Wait a minute ... You may need to keep it in good shape so you can bring it on board Vee Jay for NA2013 in Barrington ... I hope it is not a "heavy" weight main. We will slide the tidesmarine track out. and by that time i will have the base of the mast moved to 25mm. I am not planning on gettin a new OD main ... when I use heavy tides marine slides on my normal programs.

Other than a some trials with the sailmaker and a chase boat, our plan is that it'll only see the Nationals in 2012 and then won't see the light of day until hopefully when we bring it and the boat back home to Barrington in 2013.
