The ABSOLUTE One Design racing concept using controlled sails.

As well as the boats all being One Design and conforming to the Platu Class rules they are all fitted with identical sails both in quality and specification. This is similar to the system used for Match Racing. Sails may not be brand new but each boat will be fitted with the same age sails to preserve equality. Sails are usually changed every two years.

In Phuket the Platu Class all have controlled sails and Platus not fitted with such sails have to enter an IRC class or use controlled sails provided by Sail in Asia.

For regattas which allow all Class legal sails there will also be a controlled sails division. Sails can be hired for 4,000 baht per day.
