C22 Spinnaker__Class Rules

Postby flubbie » Sat Sep 26, 2015 9:10 pm

Hi
The C22 class rules are very basic. e.g. re spinnaker:

Spinnaker:
Shall not exceed 51.12 sq.m. for swing keel yachts and 55.75 sq. m. for fixed keel yachts.
Spinnaker luff shall not exceed 8900mm.
Spinnaker maximum width shall not exceed 6250mm

What would stop one from using an asymmetric or even a code zero?

Probably only the fact that a Careel 22 will never go fast enough to bring the apparent forward enough to make an asso or code zero as fast or faster than a well designed symmetrical spinnaker running DDW.

yeah, I agree that an assy would almost never be an advantage, but a code 0 is designed to sail significantly higher than a sym or assy and would be a distinct advantage, considering there is no limit to how many spins you can carry
