Proposed Rule Changes: AGM Outome

The proposed 505 class rule changes were discussed via e-mail, fax, and then at the class Governor's Meeting and the Class Annual General Meeting. Here is the outcome.
Carbon Fiber Masts
The proposal to allow carbon fiber masts was defeated at the AGM, as were several proposed amendments that would have the IRC study them further.
Eliminate Hull Only Weight and Allow Unlimited Correctors
The AGM supported the proposal to eliminate the hull only weight rule, and to allow unlimited lead correctors, rather than the current 2kg maximum correctors rule. This proposal will go to postal ballot to all members.
Reduce All Up Weight
This was defeated at the AGM.
