Notice Of Meetings:

The next meeting of the International Lightning Class Association Governing Board (District Commodores, Vice Presidents and Executive Committee Members) will be held during the Southern Circuit, Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 3pm in the St Petersburg YC.

There are two items up for vote.

The first is a temporary amendment to the Document Governing All Sanctioned Lightning Class Championships. Due to space and safety concerns on and off the water at the Carolina YC, the 2017 NAC Organizing Authority has stated they can safely accomodate 70 boats. With this restriction and the estimated number of participants a temporary amendment allowing registration on a first come first serve basis up to 70 boats is being proposed in Amendment A. Skippers will still have to qualify through their district championship before registration to the NAC is complete.

Amendment B is being proposed to comply with RRS and to modernize the look of the main sail. A similar amendment was proposed at the August 2016 meeting and it was referred back to committee. Please review the proposed amendment made by the Technical Committee to the Plans and Specifications.

Ballots have been distributed in accordance with the Class Rules. Governing Board Members please respond to your electronic ballot by March 10th. If you are on the Governing Board and did not get a ballot please contact the Class Office.

As a reminder, all ILCA memberships must be current in order for votes to be counted.

The Annual Winter Meeting of the International Lightning Class Association will be held during the Southern Circuit, Sunday, March, 19, 2017 after sailing in the Classroom at the Sailing Center.

At this time no specific items are up for vote.
