We have the result of the votes cast on the proposal published 03-06-2022 related to the Hobie 17 rule changes and sailmaker selection:
Although a small majority is in favor it is very close. Combined with the comments received the Rules Committee has decided to withdraw the proposal for further considerations and consultations.
As also said with Hobie 20 proposal last month nothing is final before the IHCA Council has made its decision based on a recommendation from the Rules Committee. Recommendations, which are prepared with the product of the comment/voting period in mind.
Following consultations with HCANA representatives it is our intention to publish a modified proposal for a new round of commenting and voting as soon as possible. A proposal that will hopefully be better received.
Thanks a lot, to the members who took the time to comment and vote. Helpful for the process and much appreciated.
IHCA Rules Committee Chair
