Dear Flying Dutchman Class members!
As you all know Tony Lyall did step down as the President of the class
at the AGCM in Medemblik.
The process for a new nomination was opened on the 25th of January 2018.
As no nominations came in until the 1st of April we silently waited for new ones.
At the AGCM in Medemblik we still hadn’t received any.
As we do not currently have a President Meike Greten – Secretary and Peter van Koppen -Treasurer- take over the tasks of the President ad interim.
Therefore it was decided at the AGCM to open a new period of six months as required for nominations starting the 1st of January 2019.
So please feel free to nominate any proper candidate who you think is the best person to be the new President of the IFDCO.
We wish all FD sailors, their families and friends around the world a peaceful, healthy and happy 2019! There are plenty of highlights coming up: FD Worlds in New Zealand, European Championships in Hungary, National Championships worldwide, EuroCup regattas, International Trophies and hundreds of regional regattas; plenty of occasions to come together and and race together. We hope to see you on many regattas ashore and on the water!
