While Hendersons proposal failed to become law, Rule 42 has been substantially rewritten a couple of times since then, and its also been modified by classes over the years to suit their particular boats. For example, the International 470 class has had some success with a yellow-flag rule that allows unlimited kinetics only when the flag is flying (usually above 12 knots of wind). But its a work in progress, as it should be, because Rule 42 is often still violated, hard for competitors to enforce, and difficult to judge consistently. For all these reasons, solutions arent likely to be simple--or simply a matter of tossing more sailors. And any debate cant ignore the fact that solutions for the Olympic classes will have an effect right down to the local level.
