13.1 The mast may be constructed of any material(s), shall be inherently straight and shall be of constant external dimensions up to band no. 3. All sections of the mast must be permanently fixed together.

___________________________________________________________
Reason:
The words "shall be inherently straight," were inadvertently omitted from the 2000 rules change proposal submitted to the membership for postal ballot and from the submission to ISAF after the postal ballot had been approved by a 2/3 majority.
