SUBJECT: Please Vote NOW on ILCA 2019 Proposed Rule Change: 
1 July - 31 July 2019
Dear District Members,

Voting is now open for a VERY important ILCA rule change.

Please vote "YES" to secure the future of our class and to make sure that we remain in the Olympics!


The 2019 Rule Change vote is VERY important, as ILCA works to meet new requirements imposed by the World Sailing Council in their 2024 Olympic Equipment Policy, which includes allowing competitive supply of boats and parts by qualified builders worldwide.

In a vote of the ILCA World Council, this rule change was overwhelmingly approved by an 11 to 2 margin, including the unanimous approval of all six ILCA Regional Chairmen.

The class now needs your support! 
Your vote "YES" will: 
1) Make sure that our class will remain in the Olympics.
2) Allow for healthy market competition and ensure that class-legal equipment is available in ALL parts of the world.
3) Give control of our class to the sailors, not the commercial parties.
