Carbon Fiber Masts for the Scot

It has been reported to us that there is a rumor circulating to the effect that the FSSA is considering approval of carbon fiber masts for the Flying Scot. This is only a rumor. There is no truth to it. Your Class officers have not discussed this subject at all Bill Ross, FS/5210, President FSSA

The source of the rumor has been found. Sailing World published an article about the Flying Dutchman Class experimenting with Carbon Fiber Masts. Someone didn't quite remember the small details :-) Bill Ross, FS/5210, President FSSA
