January 15th, 2009
The Executive Committee of the Flying Tiger Class Association was convened on January 15, 2009 to address several administrative issues regarding the owner/driver rules added in the 2009 Class Rules in Section C2.1c. The Executive Committee rendered the following decision:
- Exemptions, when and if requested, will be granted to non-Category 1 owners (as defined by ISAF) who purchased their hulls prior to January 1, 2009 as well as to Category 1 owners whose classification changed after their hull purchase. As the Executive Committee understands the circumstances today, this will apply to hulls #35, #39 and potentially #9 & #10 among others.
- A limited exemption was granted to hull #22 in view of very unique circumstances. Chris Winnard a Category 3 sailor is granted the exemption to helm #22 in any Class event while the circumstances persist.
