Latest Measurers Guidelines - Rudder Fixings. A note from the Chief IACA Measurer

We have had a number of enquires over the past few weeks as to how we should be addressing the requirements of Rule E2.1 & E.5a & c which relate to the rudder assembly and the distance from back of hull. We are now seeing various designs of adjustable rudder assemblies allowing adjustment of rake whilst sailing. With our open design nature there is no hard and fast design of the rudder assembly so we need to look at what fits within the rules and what doesn’t.  Download the guidelines here.
