"in principle" says it all, not with all recommendations itself but with the principle and that is safety recommendations.

You seem to forget that it is enough one team not to agree for the Protocol to be maintained on that particular point.

What do you have against the boats being modified (if needed) to comply safely with the existent protocol in what regards wind speed?

Do you think it is reasonable to have again (like on the monohulls) sailing boats at the top level champiomship that cannot sail with winds all other racing classes would not find a problem (I mean big boats)?
