The Technical Committee will meet between the original submission deadline and the revised submission deadline to determine if revisions are needed to technical submissions. Since an EGM is anticipated for Wednesday September 22 to approve changes to the mast rules, that EGM will be immediately followed by the Technical Committee meeting. There may be a second meeting after the amendment submission deadline and before the AGM for further discussion. The goal of these steps is to have discussion regarding the proposals and to make drafting changes as needed in advance of the AGM.
The first deadline for the National Classes is September 18th - Motions and nominations to be proposed at the AGM shall be submitted to the Class Administrator Piret Salmistu at firstname.lastname@example.org not less than 8 weeks (56 days) before the date of the said AGM. As noted above this deadline has been extended by one week.
Who can submit the motions, amendments and nominations:
Motions, amendments and nominations for the AGM shall be proposed only by the Executive Committee, National Class Associations, the Technical Committee and World Sailing. If you have a proposal you wish to be considered by the AGM you should urgently make contact with your National Class Association Officers and ask them to review your proposal and submit it on your behalf by the closing date.
