Electronic equipment which meets rule 31.2.6

Announcements Technical - Author: Technical Advisory Board Members - December 18, 2016

The Technical Advisory Board has been asked to clarify what electronic equipment can be used in Star Class racing while satisfying rule 31.2.6. Considering the interest of the Class to contain the cost of Star sailing, the intent of the recent rule change and the opportunities to improve the sailing experience, the TAB has ruled that a boat can race with a single self contained electronic device which provides direction and position based information and a timer. Examples of the approved equipment are TackTick Micronet Race Master, TackTick Micro Compass, Velocitek Shift, Velocitek ProStart and Nautalytics Alloy Digital Compass.
