I am after some info on the type of boom and the type and length of pole that the class allows, if these are restricted. Is there any restricion on manufacturer? Also are you allowed to fit a pole uphaul that is adjustable i.e. not just a piece of rope (with the hook half way'ish down in my case) with shock cord attached through the mast?

The boom needs to be a particular section from Proctors - I forget which one.

The pole is restricted by length, not manufacturer. Most boats have adjustable pole uphauls.

If you email me on so I have your email address, I will send you a copy of the rules.
