It is with a heavy heart that I wanted to notify our IOM community of the recent passing of Mr. Barry Fox on Sunday morning February 16th. His three children were with him, and his passing was peaceful.
Barry was a long-time member of the IOM ICA Executive Team serving a Secretary for years, and was incredibly active within the ranks of Canadian Radio Yachting Association (CRYA). His administrative support to radio sailing, diligent attention to detail, selflessness, and humor will be genuinely missed by all that knew him. He was a stalwart supporter of the IOM Class we all love so much, and gave freely of his time and effort so others could enjoy this passion.

IOMICA is welcoming bids to host the next IOM World Championship in 2021.
Bids are welcome up to and inclusive of 30th April 2020.
Bids to be submitted using the current questionnaire template.
Please send bids to vcevents”at”iomclass.org .
Please find copy of our voting strength document, and the outcome of the 2019 Ballot measure. I have also provided a copy of the completed agenda that highlights a couple of salient points raised by both Mr. Gavin Watson (GBR NCA REP), and Mr. Miguel Salvador (EPS NCA REP) in the “Discussion form the Floor” portion of the Agenda outline. Both topics require a time bound response by the IOM ICA board, in addition to postings being made on our IOM ICA site.
I will send a World Council update when the historic financials are posted, and review with Mr. Pedro Egea the options for an online World Council Forum potentially within the IOM ICA page.
On a more somber note, I learned this morning that Mr. Fred Rocha (our IOM ICA Chairman) lost his father today. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers, as this must be a tremendously difficult time for the Rocha family.
Thank you all for your continued support, feedback, and participation throughout this AGM process.
With Kindest Regards,
IOM ICA Secretary
