question mk V Headboard (KnotiusMax )

My first post here - just bought Minx and hoping to get her in the water soon.  I wasn't left with much in the way of sails and now looking at quotes from several lofts.  One thing I've just noticed is that the HBL for the mk V's in the Class Rules is 0.42 where PHRF would allow for 0.5ft.  I know it's just an inch but why the discrepancy when it's apparent that the mk I-IV's are making use of the PHRF specification (0.5ft)?

Scott, welcome to the fleet. It's good to hear that Minx has a new owner. Where will you be sailing out of? Are you planning to race?

In answer to your question about the HBL for the Mark V, I think you will find that the reason the class rules appear to have a limit that is less than PHRF is that because there is so little room on the Mark V to fit a main with maxie roach the class decided that they didn't want to get into mains that were impossible to tack and the class therefore also outlawed back stay whips or flickers.

Thanks Steve,
I did notice the restriction on the backstay whip - makes sense then.

I'm taking her to the RCYC and I definitely plan on making it out racing mid-week and a few weekend regatta's.  Assuming that EYC Open will be the big opportuntiy to race against other mkV's.

I look forward to seeing you out there .The EYC Open is always a good turnout of the Mark V's. If we can get enough out for the other opens we can score as a class. I'm thinking of getting Still Knot Working rated in IRC and will flip back and forth betweew PHRF and IRC depending on the registrations at each Open. It would be great if we could get a comitment from enough Mark V's to make it worthwhile to race in on rating group all the time, but based on turnout over the last 2 years it just isn't happening and it's no fun just racing one or two other boats.

I think the best two 27 regattas of the year will be at RCYC and EYC
I plan to race in both

That sounds excellent, RCYC and the EYC are already on my dance card.  Can we see if we can get some other mkV's out?
