Nacra Racing has informed the ISAF that: Due to quality issues with the upper section of the carbon mast, decision has been taken to suspend delivery of the Nacra 17 with the carbon mast.
The Nacra17 will be delivered with an alloy mast until further notice. This mast section is similar to that of the Nacra F16 and F18. All teams which have already taken delivery of the Nacra 17 will receive an alloy mast and fittings to retrofit their boat.
Nacra Racing expect that delivery of the carbon mast will resume as soon as they are 100% convinced about the solution. All alloy masts in the marketplace will be swapped back to carbon masts. Instructions will follow.
Above actions has been discussed and agreed with both ISAF and NACRA 17 class association.
