-Moved by Rob Colwell, seconded by Peter Simmons that:
Sport Boats (i.e. VX-One; VIPER 640; Antrim 7) to be part of a Mandatory Review to address perceived inequities. CARRIED
Rob Colwell (KYC) In Mast Furling – Is the credit appropriate?
No-one attending was in a position to report on similar observations. Hopefully Central Council will consider looking at this in the future.
OLSON 30 ODR – A request for an ODR rating for the Olson 30 class will be put forward to Central Council.
Conference Calls via SKYPE – Generally, no-one has an issue with SKYPE, however there is a limit to number of participants (10). Also, Canaan Leonard reported that in his experience when there are more than three participants the quality tends to degrade. Video service is also unstable. This will be monitored, and if it doesn’t work we will revert to existing Conference Call services.
No other business, meeting adjourned at 11:30 hrs.
