Action AP
5. Commission Development Plan
This was discussed and approved as a programme to follow.
Specific points:
Promotion AP to seek support for the discipline at the ICF Board Meeting in Dec. 2009.
Action AP
Technical Rules OM to begin work with Steve Clark on a glossary of terms to help clarify the new rules. AP drew attention to the work done by Colin Brown on drafting a Measurement form for the new rules.
Action OM
Fixtures Dealt with later in the agenda.

Participation AP expressed the hope that we could facilitate better international sharing of technologies (e.g. Steve Clark’s sharing of files for CNC ply cutting for hulls and seats) and good practice (e.g. UK regatta organisation to involve all three IC variants).
AS suggested the setting up of a resources database to enable individual members to access expertise and source materials and equipment on a global basis. Agreed in principle.
Publicity AP asked if a post on the Commission was required to ensure that the most positive profile of the class is maintained on the web. It was felt that each National Federation should take responsibility in their country. The international website and Forums are well monitored and, if minutes are published and the administration is transparent, the most accurate profile is available to all. We cannot have any control over opinion on sites such as Sailing Anarchy but can refer critics to our homepages.
There is still a need for publicity materials and good photographs/videos etc. This is potentially another area for international mutual support.
National newsletters are published online and have been very successful in maintaining an international presence.
Budget AP reported that the remaining funds had been transferred from Ben Fuller. The only expense to date had been the fee for the domain name AP hopes to negotiate an annual budget at the ICF Board Meeting. Action AP

6. National Federation Development Plans
It was agreed to ask National Federations to complete an outline Development Plan so a more complete overview is available. AP to circulate National Secretaries with the BCU model template. Action AP

Europa Cup Wilhelmshaven 29 – 31st July 2010
Great Britain. National Championship. Weymouth 28 - 31 August 2010

8. Preparation for the World Championship 2011

AS asked about protocols relating to invitations to officials and ICF dignitaries. AP to find out. Action AP
