  1. To decide the Norlin Mk3 Class as an ICA class and to start to administer it.

The president noted the good work done by the TC at their last meeting and received the minutes of that meeting, which will be published on the web. The head of the TC assured the meeting that the draft rules of the one design class would be available within a week and these were to be discussed by the EC at their next meeting before publication on the web.

The president proposed:

  1. The EC considers the 2012 AGM decision on the constitutional proposal as an authorisation for the EC to make further decisions in the case for later approval by the 2013 AGM

  2. With reference to the 2013.3.25 minutes form the Technical Committee the EC decides a One Design Class to be an official 2.4mR ICA class. The official name of that class will be decided together with approval of the One Design rules at the next meeting of the EC. The official versions of the Norlin One Design Class Rule and related documents are the versions from time to time published on the web.

  3. According to the constitution proposal 3.3 and 9.6.6 the EC will approach the Norlin Yachts in order to enter into a contract for the sole rights to appoint and license builders of the Norlin Mk3 for 2.4 sailing.

The above proposals were unanimously accepted.

The vice president asked that points to do with the contract would be an agenda point for the next meeting.
