As you maybe know, we have a FF Ballot happening on New Class Rules?? Have you caught up with it yet?
Apparently there have been a tiny number of responses so far. SO GET VOTING!! You can return the voting form electronically – modify the word document and email a copy of it to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you haven’t looked at it yet, there are a whole number of rule changes but the central two are
- 5kg weight reduction
- new jib/genoa design.
Now last time I even mentioned weight reduction in our Club bar I was almost lynched – so you cannot be without opinion!!
On the new jib design, I attach a few photos of it below. I used it in trials a few years ago and quite liked it…. and have voted for it…. but now I’ve seen the photos of it I’m slightly less sure I confess. Arrrggghhhh!! Some bar conversations would help, but the closing date of the ballot is not far away. So HURRY!!
Here is what our Hon Sec has to say about the ballot:-
“Votes are starting to come in on the ballot items as proposed by FFI but the response has been slow so far. This is what membership of the association is all about, there is no point in protesting by not voting and this is definitely not the time to think that this doesn’t affect you because it does. The two key proposals are regarding head sails and weight in the boat so please take time to vote; the only way to affect change or indeed prevent it if it is your wish to do so is to vote. A letter from your president will follow; Please go here for pictures information on the changes and ballot forms http://www.flying15.org.uk/news/flying-fifteen-international-rule-changes “
