Test phase for Rod Kicker
3 boats - one of each representing Denmark, Germany and Sweden - will be equipped with a rod kicker in order test it during the 2015 season. An exceptional permission issued by SYRU is available, because a rod kicker does not comply with the actual Class Rules.
The 3 boats are F DEN 1007 (Bjarne Marcussen), F GER 564 (Sönke Durst) and F SWE 1290 (Hans Torlén).
Class Rule clarification: 10.10
