2020 European Championship awarded to ITA. 2-10 October

On behalf of IOMICA I would like to thank both NCAs for there excellent bids. It truly has been a difficult decision for Scott and myself (Olivier  kindly stood aside due to conflict of interest).
The events committee felt that the bid from ITA NCA was the best all round bid, which presented competitors with a better race course with all possible wind directions. Another crucial part was the lower entrance fee (€380) offered and a better date moving the event away from the Marblehead worlds.
Although the FRA bid was a very good detailed bid we felt there was potential for a slightly restricted race course in certain wind conditions.
We would encourage a future bid from the FRA NCA with the proposed venue of Calais.

May I take this opportunity to offer our congratulations to the ITA NCA and we all forward to a great event at Orbetello with the agreed dates of 2-10 October 2020 which have been verified by IRSA.

2020 IOM EC Championship: New Bids

The events committee is please to confirm that two bids have been received to host the IOM European Championship 2020. The bids have been received from the ITA and FRA NCA.

Olivier Cohen has agreed to step aside from his position on the sub committee in order to avoid any conflict of interest.
A decision on who will host the event will be made as soon as possible by the remaining members of the committee.

2020 European Championship: Bidding reopened

It is with great regret that IOMICA has to inform its members that the bidding for the 2020 Continental Championship will be reopened effective immediately.
This is due to administrative issues with the Orbetello bid.
All NCA’s are invited to submit their bid to the the events committee chairman (vcevents at iomclass.org) by 25th August.
It is hoped that this will allow all NCA’s time to prepare their bids or previous bids resubmitted.
