Illegal rope handle
The rope handle shown is not in the end of the control line and so does not comply with rule 3 (b) ix:
Rope loop handles covered with plastic/rubber tube and/or tape may be included anywhere on the free end of a control line.
As not specifically allowed the rope handle breaks the FUNDAMENTAL RULE:
The Laser shall be raced in accordance with these rules, with only the hull, equipment, fittings, spars, sail and battens manufactured by a licensed builder in accordance with the Laser design specification (known as the Construction Manual) which is registered with ISAF.
No addition or alteration may be made to the hull form, construction, equipment, type of equipment, placing of equipment, fittings, type of fittings, placing of fittings, spars, sail and battens as supplied by the builder except when such an alteration or change is specifically authorised by Parts 2 or 3 of these Rules.
