RADIO RULE CHANGE
We would like to draw your attention to a change to our rules regarding the ever increasing functionality being built into radios.
We received a request for a rule change some time ago now and have finally arrived at a decision to use our Emergency Rule process to put it in place prior to the AGM so that major IOM Regattas throughout the year can allow for the use of the on board battery monitoring function that is built into many of the currently available transmitters. There may be some other radio functions that also need to be considered and proposed at the AGM but this one was drawn to our attention as an important one.
The full wording is available on the IOM ICA website.
Only the last 10mm of and IOM Boom can be lightened (see class rules).
This boom was found to not comply.
