Persons evaluating the new fast single-handed skiff sailed Graham's boat, both boats competed in the limited racing. Write ups of this event appeared first in the Voiles & Voiliers article elsewhere on this web site in the original French and a translation to English.



Treasurer's report

Manfred Kieckbusch stated that there were about £10,000 sterling in the account presently before any currently owed amounts have been presented. He further remarked it is much more difficult to obtain owed amounts from various countries than to find ways to spend the money.

Manfred asked that each national association post on the Internet their roster of boat owners and designate those owners who are currently paid up members in good standing.
