Prohibited Events Policy documents have been rescinded (removed)

The IRSA Executive Committee voted for the removal of the Prohibited Events Policy and associated documents. This policy had been set up by the previous administration. The IRSA currently has no independent policy position on the running of Prohibited Events and instead uses the World Sailing policy as stated in WOrld Sailing Regulations- WS Appendix 3 Eligibility Code Regulation 19.19 and 19.20

New Member Malaysia Sailing Association MSA

We have received an application for IRSA membership from the Malaysian Sailing Association. They are an ISAF MNA, and so meet the requirements of Articles 5.1 and 5.2 of our Constitution.

The Malaysia Sailing Association application to become a member of International Radio Sailing Association has been considered by the Executive Committee and unanimously accepted.

We would like to welcome the MSA to the IRSA membership and look forward to assisting them and their organisation in promoting and developing the sport of radio sailing.

Twin M and 10R World Championships 2020

The bid for the 2020 Twin World Championships has been awarded to West Kirby, Great Britain.

Both nominations were very strong and had a variety of factors about them. As a result it has taken some time to arrive at a decision.

The IRSA would like to thank the Castiglione del Lago team and the Italian national member for their time and effort with this bid. It is a good sign for our sport and please be encouraged to nominate again in the future.
