Centre Mains and Gnavs was created by Pudney
Now that the new rig rules are approved [Well done Martin], Wouldn't it be useful to update UK fleet [and the World !] on the progress and timing of the C/Main and Gnav Proposal.
My Proposal of May 2005 was passed at the last years UK AGM,and endorsed,at the last International Mirror Meeting in Sweden.
The benefits of allowing the option of a centremain for ease of handling,less damage from twisting backs,[see new rig photo!] and bringing the Class into line with all other youth and modern dinghies is clear. The option of also fitting a gnav[ upside down kicker/vang]is primarily one of space. I've fitted both items to my sons Mirror without any difficulty -- astonishing, considering I'm no natural DIY !
My reason for pressing this issue now is that there will be alot of owners thinking of purchasing new masts and booms over the next few weeks/months and if the Class is going to adopt my proposal, then let it happen SOON,so owners have the option of requesting the necessary fittings for their new mast and boom.

Shouldn't this be under Future Developments?
