By all accounts, this year’s AGM was a pretty quiet affair. There is still a school of thought that we should be pushing the “New Rig” proposals, but word from FFI is that the Australians are not at all keen.
Amongst that were two associated proposals – one that we might reduce the minimum weight a little and secondly that Mylar is allowed as a sailcloth. On both these subjects when tested with Opinion Polls on the FF Blog in 2012 we got overwhelmingly “No” reactions. So if they did get to a member vote, I feel most likely they would be rejected.
