Minutes of AGM and UK Appendices to Class Rules

The minutes of the recent RG65 UK Class AGM have been finalised and published here. A pdf version is also available and that has been published here.

Motion 1 at the AGM was a vote on allowing up to 4 rigs for UK Events. This was passed with a vote of 89% in favour and so an Appendix 1 has been published to the RG65 Class Rules for use at UK events. These are available here.

Motion 3 at the AGM was a vote to allow IRSA 65 Class boats to sail at UK RG65 events. This was again passed with 84% in favour and an Appendix 2 to the RG65 Class Rules has been published here to clarify this.
