- Class Rules
|Welcome to the Open Division II ! |
Division 2 was the most popular class in the 90’ties with legendary boards like: Tornado, Mistral M1, Crit D2, Lechner, Davidson, Jaguar, Dobbelman, Tiga, Reix, Croconuts, Speedlines, etc.. Divsion 2 was the Olympic Class in 1988, succeeded by Lechner Class (also a div2) in 1992 Olympic Games.
After a long silent period, Division2 boards appeared not to have vanished as they where widely used in low-wind areas where only a div2 -board can deliver a satisfying windsurf experience.
Nowadays, D2s are, more than ever, back to the front lines, with ID2CA (International Division II Class Association), full member of IWA (International Windsurfing Association), offering annual Continental Championships as well as many other regattas.
A Division II sailboard is defined as a round bottom sailboard built to International Displacement Division Measurement Rules initially set by the International Board Sailing Association (IBSA) and approved by the International Yacht Racing Union (IYRU) from 1979 to 1992. An objective of ID2CA is the conception and production of new Division II boards and sails using new technologies, according to existing Class Rules (1979-1992) or Category C.
– Boards built between 1979 and 1992, which are compliant with Class Rules (1979 – 1992).
– Type A sails: triangular ‘one-design’, short-battened sails with maximum sail area of 6.5 sq.m.
– Boards that do not 100% comply with Class Rules (1979-1992) but meet Category C requirements.
– Open in design and use of materials; with maximum sail: size 9.5 sq.m for men, 8.5 sq.m for women
