AGM 2010 ordre du Jour

Messagepar Gero » 09 juil. 2010 7:33

Voici l'ordre du jour de l'assemblé generale qui se tiendra à Aarhus le 3 aout 2010:

Pour les non-anglophones les principaux points sont:

-choix du mondial 2013 : Afrique du sud, USA, Barbade
-proposition d'interdire le double tangon
-proposition pour interdire les cadenes réglables comme on peut le voir sur certains bateaux allemands
-Mettre en avant le parcours banane plutot que le parcours olympique même dans les grands championnats
-Autoriser un seul jeu de voile par championnat pour eviter d'avoir une garde robe trop fournie avec des voiles trop spécifiques
-Attendre 2012 avant la prochaine décision concernant le mat carbone.

International AGM, to be held on Tuesday 3 August 2010, Kalovig Sailing Centre, Aarhus, Denmark

The agenda includes the items below. Proxy voting is not allowed, but I would be glad to hear from anyone with strong views on any item. Note that any significant change approved at the AGM to Part A or Part B of the class rules requires a ballot of all members (or boat owning members).

Proposed venues for forthcoming World Championships:
2. World Championship 2011 Hamilton Island, Australia
3. World Championship 2012 La Rochelle, France
4. World Championship 2013 Proposal to host received from RSA – Port Elizabeth
Proposal to host received from USA – AYC
(I believe a proposal has also been received from Barbados, at the same venues as the recent very successful Fireball Worlds. The 2009 AGM showed strong support for Barbados.)

Rule changes:
1.1. Proposal to update the following rule
Championship Rule 4.2 The Organising Authority shall carry out such measurement as is directed by the International Measurer. As a minimum, all sails and spars shall be checked and all boats shall be weighed. The Notice of Race and the Sailing Instructions shall specify that no more than two suits of sails, one set of spars (consisting of one mast, one boom and one spinnaker pole), one centreboard and one rudder may be presented for measurement. The Race Committee may direct further measurement or restrictions subject to the agreement of the IEC. (Received from the Danish Association)

Background: This system adds a lot of complexity and maintenance to the boat, it raises the cost of a new boat with app 1000E - the only benefit from the system is that it´s possible to jibe a few seconds faster compared to a single pole system. It is not in the class´s interest to allow a system that complex and expensive (the ratio of cost versus fun factor is way too low). We propose that a set of spars shall consist of 1 mast, 1 boom and 1 pole.

(As this is a Championship Rule it has no material effect on our Measurement Rule, nor does it contradict the ERS 2009-2012 or RRS 2009-2012. Therefore it can be deemed a minor change and voted on at the AGM)

1.2. Proposal to insert the following rule
Measurement Rules 7.2.7: The mast shrouds shall be secured to the deck and shall not permit horizontal movement in any direction. (Received from the Danish Association.)

Background: This system ads another app. 1000€ to the cost of a new boat - This benefits practically none - the top guys will still win without it.
It is not in the class´s interest to allow a system without much or any effect and high cost (the ratio of cost versus fun factor is way too low).
We propose that it shall not be allowed to move shrouds horizontally while racing

This is a class measurement rule, and as such will be subject to ballot and ISAF approval.

1.3. 5 proposals have been received from the German Association.
Proposals of German Association for the AGM 2010

(1) Up-and-Down Course - Recommendation

Background: The German association has gained positive experience with using plain up-and-down courses. The spectrum of competitive crew weight has widened. This is beneficial for the class growth.

Proposal: The international association shall recommend to the national associations to establish plain Up-and-Down courses, whenever applicable.

(2) Up-and-Down Course - Championship Rules

Background: The German association has gained positive experience with using plain up-and-down courses. The spectrum of competitive crew weight has widened. This is beneficial for the class growth.

Proposal:
C2 Championship Guidelines - Rule 9 Courses
Replace description of triangle course in first paragraph by

Courses are configured in plain up-and-down layout only. When one race is scheduled for the day the course should comprise nine legs, 4 times windward/leeward, and a finish leg to windward. When two races are scheduled for the day, the course should comprise eight legs, 4 times windward/leeward, with the finish at or close to the leeward mark. On all laps, a spacer mark is included at the beginning of the leeward leg and a gate at the end of the leeward leg.

Drop paragraph about triangles:
„The course should be an approximate isosceles triangle. Treating the windward leg as the base of the triangle, the angles to the other two sides (the reaches) shall be about 45 degrees, although in light winds this may be increased to about 55 degrees.“

(3) One Set of Sails - Championship Rules

Background: The German association has recognized a raising number of cases where teams try to gain advantage from using multiple sets of sails during a race series, e.g. by specific sails which are advantageous for particular conditions. This raises the costs unpreferably. Limiting to one set of sails during a race series would limit the costs for the competitive level. In case of damage always a replacement would be allowed of course.

Proposal:
C1 Championship Rules - Rule 4.2 Regatta Measurement

Replace „... no more than two suits of sails ...“
by „... no more than one suit of sails ...“.

(4) One Set of Sails - Measurement Rules (ballot needed as follow-up)

Background: The German association has recognized a raising number of cases where teams try to gain advantage from using multiple sets of sails during a race series, e.g. by specific sails which are advantageous for particular conditions. This raises the costs unpreferably. Limiting to one set of sails during a race series would limit the costs for the competitive level. In case of damage always a replacement would be allowed of course.
This restriction shall only apply to large events (races on 3 or more days). Testing shall still be possible on smaller events (races on 2 or less days).

Proposal:
Measurement Rules - Rule 13
Change title from „Propulsion“ to more general „Racing“.
Add paragraph:
13.2 During a race series with races on 3 or more days each boat may only use one set of sails (1 headsail, 1 mainsail, 1 spinnaker). If a sail suffered serious damage which decreases the value-of-use, it may be replaced after permission by the jury.

(5) Carbon Mast – Future Planning

Background: Internationally the discussions and attempts to introduce carbon masts seem to be ongoing. However all agree that when done without a good concept, an introduction of carbon masts could be very disadvantageous for the 505 class. A good concept would cover aspects like costs, compatibility, suppliers and repair. Such a concept seems not to be available yet. Unless a good introduction concept is available there should be now further decision on carbon masts. The class should take all time needed.

Proposal:
No decision on carbon masts shall be taken before the AGM 2012.
