Notification of Welcome

 Announcement of the country of Thailand formally joining the WORLD COUNCIL as the newest NCA


World Council Members:

I, Fred Rocha, serving as Chairman of the Executive Committee am proud to announce the completion and approval of the application process allowing Thailand to become the IOM ICA family’s newest National Class Association.   I am hoping that you will extend your support and welcome to all their participating skippers at upcoming international events. The country of Thailand is excited about promoting their internal growth of the International One Metre, and views this inclusion to our World Council as an important step in formalizing their domestic and international participation now and in the future.  Formal THA NCA contact information will be added to the website shortly, so please help me to make them feel welcome by extending your greetings and support.

If there are any questions or concern, please feel free to contact me anytime at 001-858-752-8227, or frerocha “at” .

With Kindest Regards,

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 !”

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.
