As always expect a friendly Scottish welcome and some great racing at the Castle Semple, Lochwinnoch venue. For anyone interested in attending the 2019 IOM World Championship @ Porto Alegre, Brazil, ranking 1&2 will be the final ranking events for qualification, so still time to improve on that ranking position and make the cut. Entry has been opened a little earlier for the reason that the Bowfield Hotel is fully booked so skippers are having to find alternative accommodation.

    2018 IOMICA AGM

    The Agenda for the 2018 IOMICA AGM can be found https://gbriom.files.wordpress.com/2018/12/2018-iomica-agm-agenda-modified-1272018-gb.pdf In all there are four motions that will require voting on, all motions are regarding the Championship Class Rules, two motions submitted by GBR and two motions submitted by ESP. The current version of the Championship Class Rules can be found https://gbriom.files.wordpress.com/2018/12/iomica_2018-class-championship-rules-final.pdf There is a clear overlap between Appendix A & Appendix C. The IOMICA Events Committee have been asked for guidance on the differences of these motions and the overlap, voting for or against could then also influence Appendix D’s intent. Once guidance has been received all further info will be published on the GBR IOM website & the MYA website with appropriate voting form. The Timeline for the IOMICA AGM can be found http://www.iomclass.org/blog/2018/10/16/iom-ica-2018-agm-notice-of-meeting/
  10. The response to the 2018 IOM Class Survey has far exceeded our expectations, thank you to the 240 class skippers who have responded to date. We’ve received some excellent responses and very inspiring to see that so many are passionate about the class. The survey will close on 10/10/18 @ 21:00 hrs. You can find a link to complete the survey https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/6ZNTZ7J
  11. We currently have 38 entered for both days, the long range forecast looks promising and Jeremy Collier and the Eastbourne race team have everything in hand to give us a good weekend. If you haven’t yet entered but plan to join us make sure you get an entry in ASAP. All event info, NOR, and entry list can be found https://gbriom.com/rankingraces/eastbourne18/ The closing date for entries is 21.00hrs 26/9/2018, don’t miss out!
  12. David, A picture is worth a thousand words, would be good to see the finished article. Attached is a slightly different winch line system layout I used on my V10, it has aerial grommets fitted to the tubes under deck with the fwd tube bent to align with the winch drum so just a single line on deck, it was completely dry system. [/img] Next up if you leak test the boat you will find water ingress around the mast ram, easily sorted with some blue tack around the hole in the deck bulkhead but no doubt a better solution could be found.
  13. As a class group it has always been our intention to grow the class, improve class events and the enjoyment of all participating skippers. If you own an IOM and are an MYA member please could you take five minutes to participate in our online class survey, this helps us to improve events and enjoyment for all skippers and make a solid plan for the future. The Survey can be found: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/6ZNTZ7J
  14. Reposted from Events Fleetwood IOM Nationals 2018 Post by Graham Elliott » Fri Aug 10, 2018 12:53 pm Please look on the website of the host club and the IOM GBR for the latest news about this special event. https://fleetwoodmypbc.org.uk/2017/12/29/iom-national-championships-2018/ https://gbriom.com/nationalchampionships/ Sail number clash's will be appearing soon and as expected with over 80 boats, there are a few clash's, worth a look, is it you that needs to add a prefix? The seeding races will be going live soon
  15. Due to Blue and Green Algae the Environment Agency has temporarily stopped the use of Eastbourne’s water @ Princes Park. Whilst we hope the situation will resolve itself with rain and the event will still go ahead, we would advise against booking accommodation at this time in case of change of venue at a later date. Further updates will be posted on the GBR IOM website, MYA website and social media platforms when available.
