Class Secretary Sylv Hastwell
With Storm Angus bearing down on the UK, the RBYC battened down the hatches and settled in for a good night at the 2016 Prize-Giving dinner. An excellent night was had by all and our roving photograper managed to catch most of the RBOD winners before they became overcome by the emotion of the occasion. Thankfully acceptance speeches are not permitted although this could be entertaining provided the attendees were ready for a 12 hour marathon.
Very well done to not just the winners but to all those participating in the 84th RBOD season both on and off the water. The RBOD Class goes from strength to strength and we approach the 85th season in robust health thanks to the dedicated owners, crews, supporters and donors who have been instrumental in the journey to return the fleet to it's former glory. There is still work to do but we are in great shape to make the final push to the holy grail of getting all the surviving boats on the water. The vision of replacing the missing 23rd RBOD often surfaces late in the evening when Max's Specials make everything possible but more of this in a subsequent post.
This technical note confirms the appointment of Rory Macnamara as Class Measurer and provides clarification of the following Class Rules
1. Jib sheet leads.
2. Jib luff – rope or wire.
4. Mainsheet Horse.
5. Crane for spinnaker halyard.
6. Weighing the boats.

One of the roles of the RBOD Technical Committee is to respond to questions regarding interpretation of the current RBOD Class rules. Owners or Charterers who have such questions should email them to the RBOD Class Secretary (email@example.com ).
The questions will be answered by the Technical Committee via a Technical Clarification Note which will be circulated to all Owners/Charterers and posted on the RBOD website.
These Clarification Notes will also be used to provide guidance on the implementation of new rules that have been approved at the AGM or EGM.
