    Yes it is a rule change by the SSS:

    c. In accordance with the purpose of these races, the following equipment and practices are allowed:
    i. Autopilot and/or wind-powered self-steering gear. This modifies RRS 52.
    ii. Twin headsails set on two poles for downwind sailing. This modifies RRS 50.2.

    Thanks solosailor,

    I have been looking through all of the documents I can find online and I don't see where that rule change is. Could you post a link to it? I'm sure there is more information on other rules, etc in it.

    I gather "emergency rudder" is like saying kleenex - it's a generic term for an emergency steering device.

    To wit, if Surprise! is able to participate, she will be deploying the Kraken. This is not a misnomer. The last time I deployed the Kraken, it wrapped itself around my leg and tried to pull me overboard!

    Will you be hoisting a KRAKEN DEPLOYED flag? Are you prepared to detach quickly and lose your Kraken should a tanker come through the Reach? Of course you are welcome to test your survival skills, Johnston. There will be video of all types of silliness. Bring it on.
