    Det var snabbt uppdaterat!
    Vi kom hem vid 22.

    Det var intressanta dagar i Hamburg, dock för lite om tips och trix inom IRC.

    Hi Peter

    Very nice meeting you in Hamburg. I think it was a great day, with very competent people, and we all got some inspiration back home with us, I think.

    So much talk about rules, but in the end we all just want a rule for everybody, and just one, and as the designers have only designet boats for the IRC rule, and cant remember the last ORC design, or DH, Lys, Yardstick and so on for that matter, I think we chose the right horse for the Baltic IRC Circuit, and ended up with the best possibility to make the Circuit a future international succes. Lets get rid of all that policy, and conflict of interest, and hope the different countries will listen to the sailors a little bit more in the future, as many of the prominent guys in the panel said again and again.

    Looking forward to see both you, Volker, Klaus, Par and Anders, and many of the other guys (and Anna off course) we met, during the coming season on the water, and in the bar ;-)

    I was delighted to attend the International Yacht Racing Forum in Hamburg on Saturday. I knew from the line up of yacht designers, sail and mast-makers, and other experts, that we would have a fascinating and informative day. The size of the audience, with representatives from all round the Baltic and beyond, was very encouraging for the future of international offshore racing in the region. There was clearly a huge will to break down present disagreements and take a new Baltic series forwards. From the Royal Ocean Racing Club we will do all we can to support this initiative.

    Having had the pleasure of sailing in the Baltic and experiencing first hand the dilemmas that the sailors there faced with the many rules available to them, it was very refreshing to have been at the Forum in Hamburg. The sailors and owners from many of the countries that boarder the sea were all learning from designers and constructors the value of one rule and also how accepted the IRC rule was worldwide. I think at last with open discussion between all the rule authorities they are well on the way to achieving their goal of having a common rule again.

    That was an extremely positive meeting, well run, with a large turnout. Perhaps its the sort of thing that should happen more often and in other countries as it is valuable as a two way conduit: not only do the panel get to share information but owners get to articulate their desires. I came away excited about the prospects for the return of activity to the big boat sector in the Baltic and look forward to helping more there however I can.

    It was a really nice meeting. It was a good possibility to meet all guys, to get information about what is going on and to dicuss the future of Offshore Yacht racing.
    I look forward to have such forum also in the future.
