Rules give Boat Weight as 126kg
 
Does this include:
Mast
Boom
Spi Boom
Rudder assembly
Centreboard
Wire rigging
Trapeze rings and adjusters
Sheets and control lines
Kicker assembly
 
Are many boats actually down to this weight?
 
Thanks
Alan Butler

It includes everything except the sails.
A lot of existing boats are there or thereabouts, and some are underweight with correctors (hopefully). It becomes a bit irrelevant when you factor in crew weights e.g. Shoreham fatboys vs Starcross wigglyboys

Hi Alan

Don't worry if you find your boat is a few kilos over when you weigh it, boat maintenance, tuning and time in the boat are far more important factors.
