    • I note Roger states I am an owner in 4 MYA/IRSA classes and have not heard from any of the class captains, apart from the Free Sailing class captain, for several years. I cannot speak for all the classes but in relation to 10R   he is incorrect.    Having been involved in secretarial work for the Class Captain(s) over the last 5 years I know all MYA member owners of  10R boats with a valid Registration (and some who needed to get their registration up to date) were contacted and asked to complete a COG form on information on their activities and what they would like their COG to do.  Some chose not to respond but over 65 did. In relation to volunteers.  One of the issues has always been that the jobs are just too big for one person to take on, in their spare time.  This may be part of the issue with the IOM Class., which is one of the biggest.  Perhaps an understanding that with the COG system the Secretary/Class Captain has a team to support the role which means various tasks can be delegated or have the effort involved shared would make finding people willing to step forward easier.  With modern on line meetings and communications possible  there is no difficulties posed by members of the 'team' being geographically distant.
    • Try Potter Solutions, the website is being revamped but they can probably help.
    • The comprehensive analysis by Roger Stollery would be a useful and helpful document if only it had stuck to facts rather than conjecture and partial quotes. For example, under the heading of "Objects" Roger correctly quotes the existing constitution " To encourage and promote model yachting in all its branches" but then simply says that the new proposal "has now been dumbed down to just promote sailing". This is totally incorrect. The new proposal states " to promote the sport of radio and free sailing in the UK" Our sport is much more than just sailing, design/building/restoration etc are all parts of our sport. The Objects of the MYA have not changed . Roger makes much about the selection of Vice Presidents saying that it is currently made by nomination from 5 different clubs. No it is not! The present constitution states "Nominations for Officers, Trustees, and new Vice Presidents may be made by an affiliated club, an affiliated class association or a District committee" there is nothing about 5 clubs and there is no fundamental change here in the new proposal. Apparently the EGM is only supposed to be for minor changes ? Really? an EGM is exactly the place for constitutional change to take place rather than at an AGM which already has a busy agenda. Major constitutional change should always be undertaken in a stand alone meeting. Unfortunately the wording of the present constitution prevents discussion and amendments at an EGM this is corrected in the new proposals where the procedures for an EGM correctly permit the same opportunities for discussion and amendment as at an AGM It is unfortunate that at least one club secretary has already repeated these untruths to his club members in a bid to "inform " them of changes without checking his facts first. By all means do your analysis, make your criticisms, or better still, your suggestions for improvement, but do try and stick to the facts.
