The result for both proposals is quite clear as can be seen from the number of sailors voting.
The sailor’s comments.
The feedback and comments to the two revised proposals mentioned above will along with the proposed new HC18 Rule 5.8 and 5.9 plus the change proposals to HC18 Rule 1.2 and 5.6 from round one be reviewed and analyzed by the Rules Committee.

With outset herein, recommendations will be prepared for consideration by the IHCA Council. The Council will be asked to establish their position, so the proposals can go into effect as of April 1st, 2024, if accepted.

It has also in this round two been great to note the engagement shown.
Thank you all for taking the time to support the class rule change process. Helpful and much appreciated.

IHCA Rules Committee Chair
