IMCA Switzerland - 2002 Annual Report
Over the past few months, Patrick and I started a big advertising
campaign for the Moth Class in Switzerland. We have a new website
and address also: www.moth.ch.
The IMCA Switzerland will show Patrick´s boat on the Bern
boat show and therefore, we´ve spend a lot of money in stickers,
flyers (in French and German) and posters.
Hopefully, we´ll have two or three new sailors
this year. The Nationals will be held in mid June in the French
Part of Switzerland - it is a huge event (three days) with lots
of different classes. It is out of Question that the Moths will
be seen and attract people!
We´ve had four races this year – it
was Patrick who won the overall ranking (actually, he won every
single race…) Michi finished 2nd and Freddy 3rd . We have
14 boats in the overall list but unfortunately only five to six
sailors who participated in more than two races.
One last point – we´re looking for
a good secretary! If any of you feels like doing the job... you´ll
get free membership in the Swiss Association!

Thoughts on wing floatation?
I don´t see a point in changing anything. Beginners will
learn to sail more quickly and if there´s someone trying to
cheat, either the IMCA-Executive or a measurer will have to decide
what to do. For instance, a decision could be taken during an AGM/EGM.
