Wide Racks & Bigger Rig

Saw something on the Facebook page (International 14) about wider racks and a bigger rig. Anyone know about this?

Dan or Woofy probably best to comment on this.

But my recollection was a proposal at the uk agm for a couple of boats to fit wider wings to quantify the performance and useabiliy differences.
The original boats identified didn't get round to doing the testing, so woofy has put together an m12 with the wider racks.

It has a standard rig not bigger. But the original proposal was a modest increase in sail area, but for the future


I am sure someone from the UK fleet will add to this or correct me

I got a Facebook post about Richard Woof Marine with videos of the wide racks. Is tis a formal thing with the class? Could it be approved for the San Francisco Worlds?
