Great article. Congrats to the writers and photographers.
One thing that interested me was the comment that electronic compasses were allowed.
It would be good for the Sabre Association to make a ruling on these as the technology is advancing at quite a rate. Most people wouldn't have any concerns with a digital compass as such ,however newer models have features such as ability to save way-points and can calculate VMG . Even better features will inevitably be available soon.
A ruling on exactly what will be allowed would be useful.
I'd punt for keeping compasses simple (card or basic digital)so the costs of competing are kept low which is one of the attractions of the Sabre.
