Update of Championship Rules 4.3 (7)

To all FD sailors!
As already mentioned in the New Years Greetings the rule 8.3
of the Championship Rules will be altered in the following way:
8.3  If one race a day is to be sailed the course length should be
       approximately 9-10 nautical miles with a sailing target time
       between 75 and 100 minutes for the first boat.
       If 2 or 3 races are to be sailed on one day the course length
       should be approximately 6-7 nautical miles with a sailing
       target time between 60 and 80 minutes for the first boat.
       Under no circumstances 4 races will be sailed on one day.
Why did we decide for this new rule? The old existing rule did not give
the IFDCO nor the Race Commitee the possibility to make races shorter.
Now we have the flexibility to do so. Already for quite some time quite
a few sailors indicated the wish for more but shorter races. The idea
now is to go to 12 races in 5 racing days in a 2-3-2-3-2 schedule.
