The technical committee has issued some interpretations on the DN sail.
See the PDF file for the official notice.

  • 1) New interpretation
    11/20/2011. In Specification G.8. the leech is a straight line from the head to the
    clew. Reference Specification G.17 and Interpretations G. Sail.
  • 2) New interpretation.
    11/20/2011. In Specification G.17 the spelling of the word "leach" is corrected to
    "leech".
  • 3) Amend the Interpretation G. Sail dated 3/18/89 to read:
    11/20/2011 A previous interpretation dated 3/18/89 is amended to read as
    follows: In Specifications G.8. G.17 and G.24 the location of the
    forward upper corner of the headboard is determined by projecting
    a straight line parallel to the luff (excluding the bolt rope) to the point
    where it intersects with a line projected from the uppermost point of
    the headboard and perpendicular to the luff.
  • 4) The Governing Committee announces a special ruling to read:
    The IDNIYRA Governing Committee has made a Special Ruling effective
    11/20/2011. The batten pockets in all sails made prior to 1/1/2012 shall lie at 90
    degrees plus or minus 8 degrees to the leech. These sails may be
    used in all DN races, including all championships. All other sails
    must comply with Specification G.8.

No. It's a "grandfather clause".
