Since I will be out of office till 14 January I hereby post a personal note regarding the changed bye laws. Everyone who wants to apply for an IFDCO board vacancy read my story ……
February 1st, 2nd and 3rd 2013 are the new dates the Altea Euroflying Cup will take place. On the 18th of December I received an email from Enrique Egea Moreno the technical director of Club Nautico de Altea telling about the date change. I as VP-Championship am very pleased about this change of date to the beginning of February. This event has always taken place in that period of time. BUT …….. It is even more convenient to go there because the Open Altea will be sailed 26th and 27th of January. So you can kick of the 2013 sailing season with a week of sailing in the nice atmosphere of the Altea region. Enrique and I love to welcome you there.

Dear members we hereby publish the 2013 bye-laws. In the Bulletin we did an article on the intention of the changes. From 2013 on the IFDCO-members can vote for the Executives getting involved. The process is that candidates have to apply and have 5 nominees from 3 different countries for their election. There are vacancies in 2013 we will inform you about them on short notice.
