Message for Condolence. William J. Astbury

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.

Bids for IOM European championship 2018

Dear European NCA,

Usually, IOMICA events are awarded in January the year before the event.
To give more time to organizers to prepare the event, and let next organizers the possibility to see previous event, we would like to be able to award European Championship 2018 just before or during EC 2016.
So we ask NCAs who wish to organize this major IOMICA event to send me their bids June 13th 2016 latest.
Questionnaire to be filled and signed is available on IOMICA website together with Class Championship Rules.
Please ask if you have any question.
Best Regards
Olivier Cohen
