Examination of the « Jauge inquiry »
The Board proposes to ask the members at the General Assembly wether they wish the measurement committe to work on the extension of the frame (except the hull and the deck) for the appendages and rigging + a change of the article J-2-D.

Change of the rule regarding the authorized material for the sails
Considering the technological changes, the Board decides to change the autorized materials for the mainsails, it should not change a lot financially speaking
Vote : For the change : 7, abstention : 1
This deciscion will apply only on January, 1st 2008.

The article J-25 will be changed as follow in the 2008 Guide Mini : For the mainsail and the headsails authorized materials are woven polyester and polyester film, reinforcements in High Density Polyethylene (HDPE).

Note : we recall that fibers such as Aramid (Kevlar, Technora, Twaron), Vectran, Zylon, PBO, Carbon are forbidden for all the sails.
