Jaarverslag secretaris IACA

Secretary report

It has been an interesting year with the development of the flying A's. The boats get airborne earlier

and the flight is more stable. On top of that just a few weeks before the WC an old idea, the

surfboard style sail with the trampoline acting like an end plate as an addition was shown by Holland

composites which had an interesting potential.

A number of request have been received to change the Rule 8, which ranged from modifying a part

of it and removing it altogether. Some countries who were in favour to remove it before now want to

keep it While others now want the opposite. So a new vote will be done at the WGM.

Another thing which was brought in was that with the removal of the limit of 100 entries has had an

influence of the number of sailors coming to the events who were used in earlier years, they did not have to qualify. Also the payment of the IACA fee was still not done in time by a number of nations.

So not having a limited number of WC places this could not be used as a penalty.

The organisation of the WC 2015 has been one that surprised with the way the planning was

followed. The main reason was that Maria Louise was the key figure were everything had to be addressed to. She was clearly experienced in this sort of thing, and the WC evolved steadily into a

successful event.

All this shows that the class is alive and really kicking.
