2017 World Championship: Final documents

“Dear IOM owners, you will find below final NOR, allocation of places and entry form for next World Championship, May 12th/20th in Pierrelatte, France.
You will notice that IOMICA part of entry fee is higher than usual, as we wanted to choose umpires ourselves, and book their flights as soon as possible to reduce costs.
We can say that result is positive so far, with good and experienced umpires, and important cost reduction after discussion on travel with them.
Don’t forget to send your entry form to your NCA officer, who will send it to organizers latest on Feb 13th. Pierre and his team are preparing a great event !”

To our Global IOM Family

A message for Condolence

I was just notified that William J. Astbury, lifelong radio sailing enthusiast and South American Hall of Fame inductee, passed away today very unexpectedly.  William was father to the gifted sailor Denis Astbury,  accomplished IOM builder (BritPOP)  from Nautae Racing Model Yachts.  Please keep the Astbury family in your thoughts and prayers during this incredibly difficult time.

Please ask if you have any question.
