  1. Hi John, thanks for your interpretation of the incident, interesting that talking to Graham Bantock, he was of the same opinion as you. P.S to the incident Boat B withdrew the protest as he felt that it would be wrong to penalise boat A as he had done nothing wrong. Maybe he was not such a bad sportsman after all.
  2. During the final part of a race, the leading 2 boats had to round the last mark to port and go directly to the finish line on a dead run. The leading boat (A) rounded the mark approximately 2 lengths in front and instead of going to the finish line went towards another buoy. After he had travelled some 2 to 3 boat lengths from the buoy the race officer called out and told him that he was going in the wrong direction, he immediately altered course to the finish line. The 2nd placed boat (B) immediately called protest for outside help. Boat (A) went on to win the race by half a length from (B). Would be interesting if John Ball or other serious Jurors / Judges voiced their opinion.
  3. Hi Gents, thought i would let you know that i am back into 6M and am currently building a Cerebus, looks interesting.
  4. Hi Mike, will send a list of those owners from Norwich and the Broads this Weekend.
  5. Must admit i found the results of the voting very disappointing, i was expecting at least 150+ replies. However now that i read that people did not receive their i contact E mails and knowing that John Newton kindly sent them out to all, i feel that the system might not be working as it should. I will certainly take it up with the MYA Council and see what can be done to improve the matter.
  6. Hi all, the following are the results of voting at this years IOMICA AGM. Resolution 6.1: Ratifying the emergency class rule change - Passed Resolution 7.1: Proposal to change scoring system from HMS to SHSS at International Championships - Defeated Resolution 7.2: Proposal affecting judging at International Championships - Passed Detailed minutes of the meeting, including treasurers report, will be coming out soon.
  7. Hi Eric, just a note to assure you that all votes that were submitted to me in time were counted and cast. Eric i must apologise but i did receive your vote and it was counted and have it in my record as such, unfortunately i did not press the read receipt button. As it is my intention to shortly to resign both my positions with the MYA, a man of "passion" will be required to take over. Could you be that man?
  8. Hi Eric, cannot see how people cannot be better informed. Every person that has a boat registered with the MYA was sent an E mail informing them of the Vote.
  9. The following are the results of the poll sent out to 1082 IOM owners to establish how the MYA should vote with regards to the motions set out at the forthcoming IOMICA AGM Motion 6.1: Ratify Emergency rule change regarding Gooseneck and Fittings. For: 31 Votes, Against: 5 Votes. Motion 7.1: Change event scoring system from HMS to Simple Heat Racing System. For: 6 Votes, Against: 30 Votes. Motion 7.2: Change CCR 6.4 to ensure Main Jury Members have sufficient experience to manage Continental or World Championships. For: 30 Votes, Against: 6 Votes. The MYA will vote according to the above results
  10. The Tri Services Championship will be taking place at Gosport SC over the Period 10/11 October. The event is open to all past and present members of HM Armed Forces. This year the entry is also open to the Emergency Services. Entry can be made through the MYA on line system or directly to vinnie.zammit@gmail.com Phone 01603 928411
  11. Hi all, bet you all thought that i had given up. Well i have not and if i can work out how to do it, i will post a photo. I have now nearly finished the hull and have just married the Hull, Fin and keel. Hopefully i will float it later in my Ozzie dogs padling pool. Have all the fittings for the rigs and Terry Burton has kindly volunteered to help me put the rigs together as i don't have much of a clue. Will keep you posted.
  12. There has been a lot of discussion lately amongst the IOM skippers with regards to the current Ranking system. It is apparent that the Ranking events are becoming more and more popular and the number of boats entering now warrant a minimum of 4 heat racing. This naturally leads to the fact that less races are being held over the individual days. With problems arising on the second days, through no fault of the excellent race teams, at both West Kirby (too much wind), and Falmouth (wind in all directions), which resulted in a low number of races being sailed, should we now be thinking of ways to improve the Ranking System. I am sure that the MYA Council and race team would be interested to hear of any possible improvements to the current system. Your thoughts please? .
  13. Thanks Peter, the same issue of incorporation into the Nationals was raised at Birkenhead when the Vets were held there. Same responce!
  14. I certainly hope that the people who attend the AGM will reject the motion. Bit suprised that we have not had more responce on the subject, especialy from the clubs involved. I will certainly be there again next year.
  15. Thanks Dave. Must admit i have enjoyed every one of the events i have entered, even if i did end up being "Permanent Observer", which i really enjoyed. You bring up some very good points, unfortunately people cannot help being as good as they are and should not be penalised for it.
