 A.2.2 
 Sanding
Removal, solely for a purpose specifially permited in these Rules, including forRepair of a component,of part of the outermost surface through use of an abrasive material with or without a lubricating agent, which after final repairdoes not alter the shape of a component or texture of of the surface of the Oringially supplied item,. 

 A.10.2 Save as provided in A.10.3 sail numbers shall correspond to the hull number.  However, competitors may request permission in writing to the Technical Committe (or at a regatta,for that regatta only, the Chief Measurer)to use a different sail number to the hull number. Permission will only be granted in exceptionalcases and the Committee/Chief Measurer’s decision shall be final. 

 B.2.2   All hulls,mastsections, booms, sails, daggerboards,rudderblades, tillers and rudder stocksshall:(i)only be manufactured by aLM who shallonly produce themfrommouldstaken from the Master Plugs/moldsheld by LIC andin accordance with the Building Specification;
  
 C.1.3 SUPPLIED EQUIPMENT
Where boats and/or equipment is supplied to the entire fleet for a regatta series:

C.5.1 (a) One compass(which may also include a timing function) and one additional timing  device;providedthat  it/they  can  only  provide information  relating  to  the boat’s  heading  andtime  (current  or elapsed).Themounting  bracket for  the  compass  shall be  fixedto the deckon the centre linebetween the back of the mast and the front  of  the vang  cleatand  may  use  the OriginallySupplied bayonet attachment; in addition to the deck fixing a rope or shock cord  may  be  used  as  a  safety  line  in  case  the  mountbecomes detached (but not to hold it in place in normal use).

The mount for a mechanical wind indication  device  at  the  top  of  the  mast  will  use  the  Originally supplied  fitting or  be  screwed  in  place  using  the  original screw holes. 

 C.6.1.1 The boat, spars, sail,hull appendages, control lines, attachment points and means, blocks, mainsheet, halyard, traveller, vang, vang cleat fitting, Cunningham, traveller end retainers, traveller block, gooseneck, outhauland toestrap shall be rigged, arranged and have the purchases as Originally Supplied and as shown in the Rigging Manual save as otherwise allowed to be changed by these class rules.

C.6.1.3  (c) The tips of the surface ridges of the non-slip on the deck and/or cockpit floor may be very lightly sanded to reduce its sharpness and make it less abrasive; however, only the topsof the peaks may be abraded, the texture must be maintained.  If the texture becomes relatively smooth (however this occurs),it must be reinstatedto its Originally supplied state.NOTE: the grip may not be substantially reduced, and the areas may not be sanded smooth(except s provided in C.6.1.3 (w) below for padding) 
 C.6.1.3  (d neu) The use of

(ii) ”velcro” type fastening,hooks, hooked blocks, and snap shackles to facilitate connection of the outhaulprimary line to the block, vang block to the mast, and outhaul and Cunningham shockcord,; -provided that this does not modify the intended purpose, purchase or action of any equipment and provided that such material shall not be used to create a fitting or extend a function of a permitted fitting or alter the shape of the boat.

 C.6.1.3 alt=j (k)One single righting line of maximum length of 1.5 meters may be attached to each side of the hull attached tothe location of the rear most plastic barrel under the gunwale shownin the RS Aero Rigging Manual, along with shock cord from the free end running around through the RS Sailing supplied bowfairlead under the gunwale. 

 C.6.1.3 alt=m  (n)Shockcord of maximum diameter 6mm:(i)for centralising the tiller,(ii)around the toe strap webbingto hold it up(iii)to retract or reduce slack in ropes when released/uncleated(including to pull the outhaul and Cunninghamcontrols off);this may include: (α)shockcord tied to one or both mainsheet block hangers extending through the clew of the mainsail(and may include a hook for attachment), and (β)attached to the Cunninghamprimary line and passed over the mast button,or temporarily connectedto or passed throughthe main halyard(a hookmay be used to allow fast release), however, any interaction withthe main halyard must be removable within 5secondsandmust not require anyknot/sto be undone (the main halyard must be able tobe lowered without complication resulting from shock corduse). 

C.6.1.3 alt=s (t)The daggerboardshallbe secured to the boatwith shockcord, and/or rope, which may include a snap hookand ring; a small rope loop may be tied to a traveller retainer and thedaggerboardshockcord may pass through it to deflect that shockcord. 
  C.6.1.3 alt=u (v) The Cunningham secondary line  double blocktied to the hull (not the floating one)may be replaced by 2 x single blocks of equivalent size but must be attached to the hull in the same way and in the same location.(w) Padding of maximumthickness of 3mm may be stuck (using adhesive) to the (i) cockpit floor and/or (ii) deck adjacent the centreboard case, but if it is, it must cover the entirety of the non-slip in that area and follow the outline of that non-slip.Any padding must be single colour black, white or grey.  It may not contain any logo other than RS.It is permitted to sand the non-slip surface to obtain a good adhesion surface for the padding, however, if the padding is removed, the non-slip must be reinstatedto its Originally supplied state.NOTE: (i) paddingmay not be placedelsewhere,and (ii)  padding must be adhered to the hullover the entirety of one face/surface(temporary adhesive breakdown within 10mm of edge excluded).
