NOR 2.2.(a) states that IM32Class Rule C.2.3.(c) CREWS WEIGHT is amended as follow:

  • All crews shall be weighed during the registration period prior to racing the 1st event of the Audi tron Sailing Series, no sooner than 3 days prior to the start of the event. The recorded weight will apply to the whole Audi torn Sailing Series events, excluding the World Championships. While entering the weight-in room, each crew member authorizes the Class Secretary to register his/her weight and to keep track of it for the forthcoming events. Reweighing shall only take place if a valid protest shows that the pre race weights were false.
  • If there is a crew change during the series, the team, according to the recorded weight shall remain under the maximum allowed weight, and the new crew member will need to be weighed prior to the start of the event. If the weight should exceed the limit, the whole crew shall reweight with the exception of the owner. If more than 2 crew members are being replaced for an event, the entire team will need to re-weigh. A new team joining the Audi tron Sailing Series during the season shall weigh-in before its 1st race, no sooner than 3 days prior to the start of the event.

Please forward a copy of your boat's insurance policy to the European Fleet Secretary.
