Hi,

Last summer we had an incident that took out our tiller extension.  It was of course the helm's fault. Someone gave us a spare carbon fibre extension which my brilliant crew was able to convert to a very nice Fireball extension.

I was wondering if we could have a quick rule change so that we don't have to replace it for official events.

Hi Barbara,
Its a good time sort this one out as the World Championships are starting soon and hopefully the people at Fireball International who with meeting and talking in     
Mandura Australia.
Carbon has be used in sailing for over 30 years now 505s were using Carbon masts back in the 80s.
But it takes Fireball International a long time to pass rule changes(eg two windows in jibs over 5 years) you have not much hope.
 Any Merry Christmas to you and good sailing in 2012 
You could spray the tiller with black paint and do not tell anybody.

All the Best Barry Smith (14430 Jango Fett)

Back in late September I bought in Six year old boat (14889 Millennium Falcon) so have two fireballs one for club racing and for Open meeting Nationals and Internationals.
I hoping to do the 2012 Europeans and Nationals with Hannah Showell

All the Best Barry (14430 Jango Fett 14889 Millennium Falcon)
