Re: 6.2 Entry Fees

For example there are two cases being considered at the moment, and one of them has taken too log in the process so I am pushing it now. Should they be p...

ACM Motions

There are limitations to my ability to reflect all the changes, so some deleted words are just deleted, some of the tables are hard to reflect properly (so I didn't).

6.3 Entry Card Retention

There is duplication in the rulebook that refers to the treatment of entry cards after a race. These have become different over time. This option seeks to remove the rules where possible, and where rules remain, they should be in agreement that cards do not need to be retained for significant time ...

6.4 Equipment Control

This is a cleaning up to make explicit that any boat can be used at division 2 to 4, but that having a suitably robust boat is a safety issue. If accepted, motion 6.5 will be amended to reflect this change before adoption. ................................... Page 75 3.3.3 At divisions 2 to 4 compet...

6.6 C2 Discount with Enhanced Fees

C 2 Discount with Enhanced Fee There is a confusion about C2 entries. The intent of the 2017 motion is that there is a discount of 50% of the standard entry fee. Where a competition has an enhanced entry fee this rule has been incorrectly interpreted either as a C2 always paying 50% of any entry fe...
