The 2000 class used to say "Only one suit per regatta". But once the class went passed around 10 years old or so it was realised that almost everyone had 2 sets.
They now allow you to change sails during the regatta, as it actually reduces the arms race!
People could now use their old sails (especially jibs) when it was windy, so keeping the good sails for lighter winds - so they lasted for longer before needing to be replaced.
