IRSA is the body nominated by ISAF to look after and administer the International Radio Sailing Classes. This is made up of enthusiasts from around the globe with responsibility for various aspects of radio sailing at an international level. Their work can be varied and interesting and they give us a voice at the top table of sailing globally.

3 New Classes affiliated at the recent MYA Council meeting

Plenty  is happening within the council at the moment, most of it the boring administration “stuff” but at the recent council meeting the application from the Footy, RG65 and Dragon Force classes to become affiliated classes within the MYA was accepted, all three class fulfill the requirements set out by the MYA and we welcome them on board.

Look out for news from them and chat within the MYA forum soon.

More things to come out of the meeting were:

  • Clarification on the MYA’s view on IRSA executive committee members and their role in the MYA, this took some time and there was robust debate but all around the table agreed that  It is not appropriate for an executive member of the MYA (with the exception of the International Officer) to hold a position with IRSA.
  • Lakeside Behaviour, the MYA Council and Race Team were in agreement that any disputes should be dealt with under rule’s 2 and 69 and clubs should be encouraged to promote the RYA Racing Charter.
  • Website- Watch this space…
  • 2015 Racing Calendar: Most of the Nationals dates are agreed and the calendar will hopefully be released to District Councillors soon for their local input.

Plenty more was discussed and the minutes will be available in the knowledge base in the next couple of weeks, keep and eye out for them HERE.

Read them thoroughly as questions will be asked later…. :)
