ILCA-NA Executive Committee
Meeting Minutes
August 10, 2015

The meeting was called to order at 7:02pm EDT.  In attendance were Andy Roy, John Long, Al Clark, Eric Reitinger, and Sherri Campbell. Meka Taulbee was unable to make the call.

1.The minutes from June 8, 2015 call were approved as distributed.

2.Office Report
a.    The Laser Sailor: next deadline is September 15
b.    Finances & membership: reports distributed earlier. Membership is slightly ahead of the last two year which may be due to participation by CAN & USA sailors at various Worlds held in North America.

3.Other Business
a. Regatta Reports
1.    North Americans – went well with good attendance (187 total).  New venue at SailNC worked out well. Some issues of lack of amenities, charters.
2.    US Nationals – reports of issues with using Regatta Network scoring system and host slightly disappointed with the attendance (190 total). Problems with fleet overlaps and races a bit too short.
3.    Canadian Nationals follow up – with only 2 races completed, a question came to the office regarding the awarding of GP points since our GP rules require a 3 race minimum.  It was agreed that since the host made every attempt to complete more races and uncooperative weather was the cause, the GP points should be awarded.
b.     2015 AGM – Sherri noted that it was announced and attempted at the North American Championship although at the appointed time, only Sherri and Ryan Minth were present.  Discussion followed that most sailors present at regattas are not interested in attending a meeting and that if members have issues or questions, they are likely to contact the class office via email or phone rather than waiting for an annual meeting.  The meeting will continue to be held per the class By Law requirement.
c.     2016 regatta calendar – CGRA has offered to host the NAs July 14-17.  All agreed to accept this offer.  Sherri noted that both Midwinters are set and on the calendar.  Remaining unconfirmed regattas desired locations are noted on the 2016 Grid on the class website. It was noted that the desired district locations can be overridden if a suitable host from another area comes forward.
d.     ExCom elections – Sherri reminded all that the elections will be held in October.  All were asked to respond to her with their plan to go forward in their current positions
e.     Change to Masters scoring – Tracy Usher noted to the class office that ILCA has added a “Legends” category to the Masters Worlds for those racing Radials who are 75 and over.  The request was made to have this category added to the North American Masters handicap scoring program.  Discussion followed and it was agreed that this should not be done.  Comments were made that NA is the only region that does Masters scoring this way and also system may in fact discourage Apprentice category sailors from participating.

Meeting adjourned at 7:45 pm

Next call: September 14, 2015
