6. Rules and Regulations 
a. Submissions 2007

IFCA prepared 2 submissions to ISAF November meeting 2007

1) Keep windsurfing in the Olympics

2) Sailnumbers for Racing disciplines (incl. Slalom)

Both were approved by the meeting


b. IFCA World Slalom Ranking

We have now more then 400 slalom sailors in the ranking. It is working very well but should be promoted and communicated more aggressively to our MNA's!!

As a test we will limit for 2008 the Women ranking to the top 3 events/year since there are not a lot of events where ladies can participate.  A separate event calendar pointing out women events should be developed and promoted. This way the few women that we have, yet can be teamed up for bigger fleets.

7.  2008 and onwards event schedule. 
- 2008   Freestyle Europeans with EFPT (tbc)
- 2008   Slalom Europeans with Eurocup 
- 2008   Slalom Junior, Youth & Masters Worlds in Torbole                        7-14 July
- 2008   Freestyle Junior, Youth & Masters Worlds in Bonaire                    Late July
- 2008   Slalom Worlds in Portugal, Figueira da Foz                                  31/8 - 6/9
- 2008   Freestyle via EFPT??


- 2009   Freestyle Europeans with EFPT (tbc)
- 2009   Slalom Europeans with Eurocup 
- 2008   Freestyle Junior, Youth & Masters Worlds in...... 
- 2009   Slalom Junior, Youth & Masters Worlds in Bonaire                      Early July

- 2009   Slalom Worlds in Germany - Sylt                                               29/7 - 2/8

                        (combined with freestyle worlds?)

                        or alternatively in Squamish (Canada)


8. Partners
- Cooperation with IWA   nothing to report
- Cooperation with PWA to be further followed up. It cannot be a one way communication: ifca allows pwa, and pwa takes away afterwards our merits…..

9. Any other business

Following items should be discussed in the near future with a questionnaire to our MNA's

- black flag rule or FW rule -> one over = no generall recall for ½ fleet racing…..

- angle courses = 95 degrees should be 100-120 - drawing in championship rules

- new seedings is no must after every elimination

- 30 minutes after new course or seeding is too long

- Grand Prix for organisers who want something with a bigger name than EuroCup or are outside Europe

- prize money issue, do we need prize money for the Worlds? I think that all agreed that a title should be a value of its own and that prize money is nice but not obligatory.

- gold and silver final instead of loser…..

- first gold final and then silver final in eliminations

- midweek party

- don't end event on Sunday, end on Saturday and party….

- 2 year limit on production slalom boards to be further investigated with manufacturers before a decision is made.

- An urgent effort is needed to dynamise the website



End of the meeting 21h30
