Minutes from the
last NZJCOA & Sanders Cup AGM's
from the minutes
· Nationals & Sanders Cup 2001/2002. After some discussion, it was agreed that Auckland would be the best option for this regatta. The regatta would probably be run in mid to late January. The feeling of the meeting is that the 2002/2003 regatta would be held in Tauranga or Gisborne, dates for the contest are to ensure that any boats returning from Perth would be able to attend this regatta.
· North Islands 2000/2001 are
to be held in Taupo on March 10 & 11. The feeling of the
meeting is that the North Islands for 2001/2002 would be held
in Whakatane, dates to be finalised so that they do not clash
with the Auckland Nationals/Sanders Cup
2. Professional rules. After some discussion on the likely effect of these rules, it was decided that the Javelin class would not restrict professionals from entering the class. The international body is to closely look at the proposed rules, and set up a ballot to this effect if required.
3. Website. Many favourable comments from the floor on the content and general design of the site. Rob Fordyce to look at adding a calender of events. Also, we would like to get more Australian content into the site, Rob Fordyce to work with the Victorian, and WA Associations on this.
4. International body. The issue of who forms the international body was raised. After consultation with the International Constitution, it was agreed that Each of the three associations was to appoint to members to the International body. It was agreed at the meeting that the elected NZJCOA commodore sit on this board. Similarly, other elected officials from the NZJCOA including Measurer and Registrar sit on the sub boards of the international committee. The Victorian, and Western Australian Associations are to appoint their members at their next Association meetings. The International body will then convene.
5. Rules redraft. During the Wellington contest, a group of people spent considerable time discussing the class rules. It is the intention that Rob Devenish put forward a number of amendments to the international body which would simplify the rules, and make Javelins easier to build. These amendments are the consensus of opinion from the meeting.
6. Minutes of the last South Pacifics AGM. These were read by Dave Tyrer.
