Based on feedback and after consultations with representatives of the Hobie Cat Wave sailors the Rules Committee has decided to propose Hobie Cat Wave Rule 6.10 changed as follows:
Hobie Cat Wave Rule 6.10
Amend to read:
“A line or shock cord line may through a single block be attached to the bridle wires and run to a cleat of any design on the front crossbar to adjust mast rake. The mechanical purchase shall not exceed 2:1.
There can only be one place of attachment anywhere on either of the bridal wires. Attachment to the bridle wires may be rigged in any manner and the dead end of the running line may be attached anywhere on the front crossbar.”
