President report

Annecy 2017 World Championship :

9 countries and 2 continents : We have make the minimum required by World Sailing to ensure that the IMCCA remain a World Sailing recognised class. This is a good news and an important achievement for the continuity of the class.

The results are still to be send to world sailing. We didn’t have the support from the Federation to do it.

EuroMicro 2017 :

The ranking is late, due to the lack of time and the organisers do not send the results. For 2018, Regis Mitonneau will take the responsibility of the web site, and calculate the EuroMicro results.

For 2018 Régis will issue an Excel format to collect easily the results. The format will include World Sailing Sailor ID for competitor to simplified. (Nota : this ID is provided by World Sailing free of charge).
