Proposals for Resolutions

  • Resolution WC_AGM2007_01 from IOMICA ESC
    • Proposal:
      Change in Class Championship Rules:
      8.6.1(ii):
      Replace:
      “For World Championships, two places to each Member NCA, or for Continental Championships, two places to each Continental Member NCA.?
      With:
      “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.?
    • Discussion:
      The change to 8.6.1(ii) clarifies the allocation of 2 places to Continental NCA’s and 1 place to all other NCA’s.
  • Resolution WC_AGM2007_02 from IOMICA ESC
    • Proposal:
      8.6.1(iv):
      Replace:
      “For World Championships, the ESC may allocate guest places to competitors pursuant to rule 7.3, to a maximum of 10, where no more than 2 places shall be allocated to any one country, using the finishing order of boats from the country in the previous World championship. For Continental Championships, the ESC may allocate guest places to Continental competitors pursuant to rule 7.3, to a maximum of 10, where no more than 2 places shall be allocated to any one Continental country, using the finishing order of boats from the country in the previous Continental championship.?
      With:
      “For World and Continental Championships, the ESC may allocate guest places to competitors either not represented by a NCA, or that have demonstrated noteworthy dedication and service to the class, to a maximum of 10.?
    • Discussion
      The change to 8.6.1(iv) allows the Events Sub Committee more scope for allocating guest places, specifically those skippers with an NCA that would ordinarily qualify but find themselves unable to meet the criteria of their NCA due to exceptional circumstances.
  • Resolution WC_AGM2007_03 from NCA for AUS
    • Proposal:
      Change in IOMICA Regulations
      Delete Regulation 5.3 in its entirety
    • Discussion:
      IOMICA has difficulty in attracting candidates for office as many potential candidates are disqualified from standing by this clause. We consider the remote chance of conflict is more than outweighed by the opportunity to attract quality candidates.
