BOAT REGISTRAR WANTED 0 (0)

Dear FD-sailors,
As Tony Lyall recently informed the General Committee that he took the decision to step down from his position as Boat Registrar we of course first want to thank him for all his effort and time to perform his job.
As all positions in the board are important also is his. We need the Measurement Certificates in order to be able to compete in our regattas.
So Tony many thanks from the Class for what you voluntarily did for us after off course being our President in earlier times!
So at the same time we want to ask if anyone is willing to take over the job as the Boat Registrar. The task of the boat registrar is providing the measurement certificates. In the first place for the new boats but also in case of change of ownership or when measurement certificates are lost. In 2023 Tony issued 19 measurement certificates. This to give an
indication of the quantity. Tony is willing to help an eventual successor in the transition.
Note: As the Boat Registrar you are not obliged to take part in any meeting.
So please if anybody is willing to take over his job please contact us!
Regards
Peter van Koppen
President IFDCO

Worlds Measurement Timeslot 4 (1)

Dear participants,

Last Worlds we started with the new online system for reserving a time slot for measurement.
It was successful. All knew in advance to be measured and we were on time for each boat.
This is why we will set this as a standard for all coming Worlds and Europeans.

You can reserve a time slot in 2 ways:

1. Using the online system by following the link: https://datumprikker.nl/pfx5n3wkp58qs3in

2. By sending an email to me with your boat nr and 3 possible time slots
(tanja.heijink@gmail.com)

 

Please find all necessary information and instructions in the following document.

Entry Fee Grant Worlds St. Petersburg 2.8 (5)

Dear Worlds Competitors!
As the Notice of Race was produced quite late (november 2023) by the organizers we were not informed about the very high entry fee any earlier.
The Committee tried to get the entry fee down but as the St. Petersburg YC did not find any sponsors for the event they did not want to lower the entry fee.
Quite a few participants were very unhappy about this and expressed their disapointment to the committee.
In a Zoom meeting on february 14 2024 the committee decided to support the teams that will go to St.Petersburg with the amount of €130 in order to compensate for the very high entry fee. This is a one time decision!
For those involved please contact the treasurer Roman Houdek to get the Entry Fee Grant transferred to your account.
Regards
