Dear Moth Sailors,
Notice is hereby given that the 2012 Annual General Meeting of the International Moth Class Association will be held at Campione del Garda, venue of the Zhik Nautica Moth Worlds 2012, on Friday 24 August.
The following are links to the relevant meeting documents which I encourage all members to read:
To elaborate further:
Secondly, following resolutions at the 2010 & 2011 AGM's concerning the addition of a Vice President & Chief Measurer position, an updated constitution has been drafted adding in these two positions for the Council of Presidents to ratify at this AGM.
A 2/3 majority of votes present at the AGM is required to ratify these new documents, with the constitution coming into effect immediately and a proposed date for transition to the new rules of 1 October 2012 (subject to ISAF approval)
Should members have questions regarding any of these documents please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
With 108 boats and 20 nations already registered for the Zhik Nautica Moth Worlds 2012 this promises to be one of the greatest events in the 84 year history of our class and I look forward to seeing everyone in Campione next month.
Dear IMCA Members,
Thank you for the prompt responses to your own national Presidents on the vote to amend the 2011 World Championships NOR and thus allow wingsails to be measured and compete; or not to amend the NOR.
The Presidents of all national associations have responded with the vote being 30 in favour of option 1 and 6 in favour of option 2.
We will therefore be proceeding with issuing an amendment to the NOR under the guidance of and with approval from ISAF. Chief Measurer Adam May is currently working with ISAF on the final text and I expect this to be released shortly.
Dear National IMCA Presidents,
Applications for recognition of National IMCA status, together with proposed constitutions, have been received from Austria, Singapore and Spain. The IMCA Executive has reviewed the applications and hereby grants provisional membership to IMCA AUT, IMCA SIN and IMCA ESP to be formally ratified at the 2011 AGM.
The office bearers and contacts are:
IMCA AUT (Austria)
President: Nikolaus Liebscher
IMCA SIN (Singapore)
President: James Cole
IMCA ESP (Spain)
President: Pablo Arandia
Dear Moth Sailors,
As per the decision at the 2008 AGM, ISAF have now approved class rule changes in the following two areas, these rules are now in effect and thus will be valid for the 2009 European Championships in June and the 2009 World Championships in August.
The first rule change is that now boats that were first measured after 1 Jan 2005 can only carry sails measured to the new "true area" method.
Boats first measured prior to this date may continue to carry sails measured to the old method.
The second major rule change is that now it is legal to pump twice for each wave or gust or to promote foiling after each tack or gybe.
Repeated pumping as we have seen in some events is still illegal, as is any more than 2 pumps in an attempt to promote foiling in marginal conditions.
RRS 42 thus still applies and boats may be protested and/or disqualified for repeated pumping.
No upcoming Events.
