Not sure many, if any, of the rules were designed for handicap racing at all. The boat lengths at a mark rule when long, fast boats and short slow ones are involved can cause issues, but proper course has to be the big one, as you say.
Firefly 2324, Lightning 130, Puffin 229, Leader, Topper 44496, yellow Minisail

A much better system. However, it doesn't fit with the sudden death for the cameras type approach that seems to be favoured for the Olympics these days - which is perhaps no reason why the rest of us have to put up with it.

But you don't have to put up with it, it can be changed in the Sailing Instructions for any event.

What exactly is it about rule 17 that you don't like and would want changed?

So far as I can see from the submissions, no change to rule 17 for fleet racing, no change to rule 17 in Appendix D (i.e. for Team Racing), but it looks as if Appendix C will delete rule 17 for Match Racing.

Also, I think that the last annual meeting at which rule changes for 2017-2020 can be approved was the meeting last year in China. Barcelona this Autumn is too late for translation and printing before Jan 2017.

Pretty much. See http://www.sailing.org/tools/documents/2016RegulationsMay2016-[20737].pdf esp 28.2 on page 85. If I read it correctly the final version is supposed to have been completed on May 1st (2 weeks ago) and be sent to the NAs so they can organise translation by June 30th.

Hmm interesting, I had it on what I thought was reliable authority that changes to 17 were on the cards, at least for team racing, from a certain well known team racing institution. In that case no idea what he was talking about.
