Laura Jeffers | Published on 4/28/2023
A Committee was formed following the 2022 Annual Meeting to evaluate racing at Masters events. 

The Committee included, 
Bertie Werley, Chair, Eva Burpee, Bob Bush, Bill Cabrall, Joan Hurban, Hugh Hutchison, Ed Roseberry and Dave Sprague. 

Scope and Objective of the Committee: 

·Articulate the principles that should guide the ILCA Masters regattas with respect to the number of races per day and total series;
·Provide recommendation(s) to the ILCA Executive Committee for inclusion in the ILCA Race Committee Instructions and eventual adoption by the Governing Board to the Documents Governing Sanctioned Events (“Documents Governing”) for the North American Masters and International Masters
·As a secondary objective, determine how to integrate with other Masters events (currently Southern Circuit and ACC’s) 

The Committee met over several months, compiled a survey, gathered feedback and prepared several recommendations:

Executive Committee has approved all recommendations, to be included in Race_Committee_Instructions.pdf for Masters regattas and NOR additions.

Inclusion in these documents should insure adoption for all future Masters events
