The recent mail vote on the measurement issue has been a test for the
new constitution that was adopted a few years ago. Owners have cast
votes for 102 boats of all ages.
The final result of a decisive majority, by 59 votes to 43, for keeping the older boats racing without having to make changes, shows that we still want to be a class that includes all 8 Metres. Thank you all for your interest - it has been good for IEMA funds too ! I know there have been differences of opinion, but trust those who had a minority view will accept the democratic decision, and we can all go forward to further the growth of our class and restore our reputation for being a friendly class racing vigorously and fairly.
Your Executive will certainly be working for you with that aim.
