Is there anything in the class rules for the tiger that states a minimum for Sail Area

What i mean is...if you have small F18sails for the Tiger built by Hobie EU is there anything in the rules that says you cannot sail them at a Tiger OD event?

:wink: :roll: :shock: :o

Good question. My guess would be that it would not be a problem as long as the sails had the Hobie decal on them. Minimum weight would still be 309 as per the class rules. So I don't think you'd be very competitive as you don't get the advantage of a lower minimum weight as you do under the F18 rules.

What do ya have in mind Tommy?

I know where you can get some sails.

I stand corrected.

I posed the question to the IHCA rules committee and following is their reply:

"Only the 4.15 m2 jib and the 21 m2 spi are legal for Hobie Tiger class racing."
