Rule Changes for 2012

The following change was implemented for this season:

  1. Introduced FAI rules for free triangle records

1. Introduced FAI rules for free triangle records

In 2008 the FAI introduced a new record category for free distance around a triangular course, but forgot to define the start/finish criteria. We have given up waiting for them to do so, and have decided to use our own circuit gap definition.

This is different from the current way UK triangle records are scored, which requires that your start/finish is also one of your turnpoints, so we now have two record categories for FAI triangles - UK Rules and FAI Rules. Qualifying flights since 2008 have been re-evaluated to establish the current holders.
