7. Can we be weighted at any time during a regatta?  Yes, the class rule provides that a team may be spot weighed at any point during a regatta. The ethos of the class is that we are a non dipping class, that why we have the opportunity to do random weight checks. We want it to be fun we don't want hungry dehydrated sailors.

9. Can we dive our boat during a regatta? No, unless the regatta is longer than 3 days then it can be dived once without breathing equipment and once again 2 days later. See clause 15.1.
