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.

Happy New Year!

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!


FD Worlds Measurement – important!

A kindly reminder from the measurement team (see also the last Bulletin).
You have all filled in the entry form (or are becoming to) for the worlds in Nelson in February. We are aiming to have the measurement as short as possible. To accomplish this I need your help. Please send all your measurement papers in advance:
* Measurement certificate
* Measurement form
* both membership cards
Please scan them and send to me by email. Thanks in advance for your help.
