Shroud Stabilizer Loop use disallowed

The Etchells Class One Design Technical Committee and Chief Measurer have determined that the use of ‘shroud stabilizer loops’ on Etchells to snug the shrouds and stabilize the rig represents an illegal adjustment to standing rigging in contravention of CR C.9.7(b)(1), and thus their use is not allowed.
