Apart from the two length zone changing to a three length zone

Does anyone know if there are going to be any other changes to the rules next year?
Regards,

Yep yep the new Willis book is now out. Funny usually the most common talk I do over the winter is tactics and strategy but this winter looks like it is going to be the "new" rules. Funny at a recent event a friend of mine was protested and the protest committee asked if the protester displayed his flag and whether he had mast abeam!

Doesn't surprise me. The protest committee is usually not organised before an event, in the hope that it will be a "good event" with no protests!

Mind you judges often have only themselves to blame - too many are of the "I be around, phone me if there is a protest".

I believe judges should be more hands on. If I am asked to attend an event I usually ask to review the SIs, with a view to avoiding potential requests for redress. I try to be allocated a RIB so that at least I can see the conditions. I prefer, when at dinghy events, to judge rule 42 ont he water. I believe that the judge should attend the initial briefing and be available for competitors to answer rules queries.

When good relations can be established with the Race Officer the judge can have a real role in helping run the eent. A Race Officer works "forwards" - from setting the course to getting the competitors back home safely. However, the judge thinks backwards - from the potential protest or request for redress back to how to prevent the situationin the first place.
