If you look carefully the tail of the mainsheet is still to the centre of the boat. I think you'll find they are circumventing the rules by keeping the swivel and block in the centre of the boat with the tail running through it but just not choosing to use it. The rules say the boat has to have it but dont prohibit grabbing the falls of the main!

"the mainsheet must pass through and be taken from the final turning block mounted either on the cockpit floor or on a turret, in accordance with 1.3.19.   The helmsman must take the mainsheet at all times, the only exception being the crew providing momentary assistance in exceptional circumstances."

The rule has been changed for the all girl boats as the whole point for them is to prepare for the 2016 Olympic 2 man skiff....

It's part of LDC's lobbying to get the 900 selected. Not saying it's wrong, but I really, really doubt the idea for the rule change came from the general class membership, as as far as I understand they've been very resistant to changing it in the past.

If they've changed the rule it should be written down somewhere. A cursory glance at Class Rules and SIs doesn't show it.

~Impressive sailing.  But honestly, why ban off the boom sheeting or letting the crew take the main. If it makes the boat faster, easier and/or more fun to sail and costs no money.... why do they ban it? Only to allow it on all girl boats.  Stupid stupid stupid.  

Are RS turning into Laser?  Or do they actually have a good reason?
