Class Rulz – 3:1 Traveller System


Rule 3.3.1.2  Traveller purchase can be increased to 3:1.

M242 Fleet 2 - Vancouver Island, initiated a change to Class Rule 3.3.1.2 to allow more purchase in the traveller system to make adjustment easier in heavier air.  The rule change was passed by IMCA during the winter of 2013 and the Class Rules were updated accordingly as of 2014-01-19.

The new Rule wording reads as follows:

3.3.1.2        Traveler – 3:1 maximum with a single cleat at each end of the traveler on the seat back. Cleat eyestrap fairleads are permissible.

Here is a sample diagram showing the potential setup, followed by a few photos:
