Appendix A – Resolutions for Changes to Class Championship Rules
7 – Changes to Class Championship Rules
7.1 – Change CCR 8.6.1(ii) to accommodate the increased number of NCAs potentially sending members to World and Continental Championships – Proposal from Events SC :
Change CCR 8.6.1(ii) from :
(ii) For World Championships, two places to each Member NCA, or for Continental Championships, two places to each Continental Member NCA and one place to each other Member NCA which has declared interest as in 8.2.
Proposed Wording: (changes in red)
(ii) For World Championships, two places to each Member NCA (one if the number of certificated owners at the previous AGM is 50 or below), or for Continental Championships, two places to each Continental Member NCA (one if the number of certificated owners at the previous AGM is 50 or below) and one place to each other Member NCA which has declared interest as in 8.2.
With an increased number of NCA within IOMICA (which we welcome ! ) the allocation of places gives less importance to previous championship results and participation. For example, with currently 27 NCAs, at a world championship 54 places are distributed at stage 1 + 4 to host country + 5 for guests + 1 for previous World champion, so 64 places from 76 available.
So only top 12 competitors NCAs of previous event will get additional places at first stage.
Proposed change will allow more countries to get places based on previous results and ensure that participating countries are rewarded for that.
Notice of Meeting
This letter constitutes the formal Notice of Meeting for the Annual General Meeting of the IOM ICA.
Due to other activities taking up a substantial part of the Executives time recently the AGM for 2013 is slightly delayed. For the AGM to follow the guidelines of the Constitution and Regulations the following dates will be used to define the mileposts that are required.
October 6, 2013
4.6. Resolutions for an ordinary or annual meeting of the World Council shall be specified to the IOM ICA Secretary in writing at least 10 weeks before the meeting at which they are to be proposed.
October 20, 2013
4.7. At least 8 weeks’ notice in writing shall be given of any ordinary or annual World Council meeting by the IOM ICA Secretary to the members of the World Council, together with a copy of the agenda for the meeting and of any resolutions which are to be proposed at the meeting.
November 17, 2013
4.9. Four (4) weeks before any meeting of the World Council, Member NCAs and NCSs shall declare in writing to the IOM ICA Secretary, by boat number and owner’s name, the Registered Owners, Registered Boats, Certificated Owners, and Certificated Boats that the Member NCA or NCS represents.
December 14, 2013
Not in the Regulations but voting results from each NCA need to be in my hands before the meeting is called to order in order to be able to represent that a quorum is represented by NCAs that are actually submitting votes.
December 15, 2013
The AGM is conducted.
This is an election year. Usually nominations for any and all positions need to be in hand by the “resolution deadline” date, October 6, 2013. Because of the delay in sending this notice we will extend the deadline for nominations to October 13, 2013.
For this election cycle, most of the existing Executive have indicated that they are willing to let their names stand for another 2 year term. However, the position of Chairman is one where the incumbent is not standing for another term.
If you have any questions please contact the Secretary and/or Chairman directly.
On behalf of the MYCS and IOM SUI NCA it is a pleasure to announce…
R/C Sailing Club Radiovelisti Lugano bids welcome to all participants of the SwissCup in Melano 5th of October 2013
The venue features a steady breeze, elevated walk able control area with excellent site lines and dry launch. The site allows for superb courses in width and length.
The Camping Monte Generoso is a partially wooded natural park of around 20,000 m² on the shores of Lake Lugano (270 m asl) in the municipality of Melano. It is located only 10 km south of Lugano, located 20 km from Como and no little more than 50 km from Milan. A location that is perfect for interesting excursions.
The environment, the climate and the Ticino sun contribute to guarantee a pleasant stay.
The famous mountain “Monte Generoso” (1700 m.è.M.), which rises behind it is to reach a rack railway and is ideal for relaxing excursions in nature and offers a fantastic view of the lake area, the Po Valley and of the Alps. Guests will enjoy the camping 25% discount on the full ticket price.

For the family of Monte Generoso offers an interesting destination.
We look forward to an exciting race.
The venue is located just 10 km south of Lugano.
IOM SUI NCR
Over the past couple of weeks there has been a lot of discussion around the recent political events in the neighbouring countries and areas around the location of this year’s Worlds. The Israel Yachting Association (IYA) and the IOM ICA have had numerous discussions about possible actions regarding this event.
During those discussions it was decided, and announced, that no decision would be taken until a couple of weeks had passed.
Very recent events now indicate that there has been a substantial moderation in the situation and as a result the decision has been taken to move ahead exactly as previously planned and conduct this event at the location and time originally agreed to and approved.
IYA and the organizers have informed us that “all preparations are going well. All sailors are safe and welcome to come. Fantastic sailing conditions are expected as well as great atmosphere and a lot of fun”
It should be noted that the safety and security of participants attending this event has been a major focus of the application for and approval of this event. The Israel Yachting Association and the people directly involved in organizing this event have gone out of their way at every step of the planning of this event to assure that these factors have been in the forefront of any decisions. They should be commended for that focus.
A note has been sent to all entrants and NCAs to welcome them to the event and outlines some interesting plans for a day trip to Jerusalem on the scheduled lay day. (Download here).
IOM ICA wishes the best to the organizers and all competitors for great weather, good winds and a terrific event. We look forward to continuing updates leading up to and during the event.
