2014 Class Rules update
Update to International Martin 242 Class Rules
The following rules have been reviewed and adopted as of May 1, 2014.
Rule 3.3.17 Deck tensioning strap system to reduce deck compression when under load (NEW)
M242 Fleet 1 - Vancouver, initiated a new Class Rule 3.3.17 to allow boats to implement a new deck tensioning system to reduce or eliminate the upward flexing of the deck that can occur around the mast collar area when the shrouds are tensioned. Several pictures of fittiings to help show what a sample system might look like plus a few of the individual component options can be seen here. The rule change was passed in March 2014 and the updated Class Rules are now current as of 2014-04-17. A pdf copy of the revised rules can be downloaded here.
Rule 188.8.131.52 - Changing crew (members or numbers) or Equipment during a Major Regatta (REVISED)
M242 Fleet 1 & 2 - Vancouver / Vancouver Island, revised Rule 184.108.40.206 which deals with changes to crew or equipment during a National, North American, or International Championship Regatta. The new wording completely replaces the old wording, and restricts the Rule to the above-mentioned Championship events. Organizing Authorities who wish to invoke the Rule for other events, such as a local Fleet Championship Series or a regional regatta, may simply state in the NOR and SI's that the Rule applies to a specific event or Series, should they so choose.
The rule change was passed in April 2014, and the change in the rule wording was prompted by a desire to define specifically which "IMCA-Sanctioned" events the rule applied to.
Thank you to Michael Clements for keeping the Class Rules up to date.
