Revise Age Groups:
The proposal assumes a re-alignment of age divisions for men and women – it makes no
sense to have different age divisions for male and female. The revised structure has already been adopted by Raceboard Class and is a proposal also to be voted at the forthcoming Formula Windsurfing AGM.
Master is a man or woman who has reached the age 40.
Grand Master is a man or woman who has reached the age of 50.
Veteran is a man or woman who has reached the age of 60.

Late cancellation and “no shows”, without good reason, will lead to a penalty fee at the next championship event.

Under the proposals below, IFCA – under its current Constitution as a class association – would be responsible for, and manage, more than one “Class” as defined by World Sailing. In the same way that the Techno Class Association manages 2 “classes” (T293 and T293 Plus) IFCA can manage 2 or more classes
