On behalf of the International Rules Committee and with the approval of the International Executive Committee, I wish to announce a Measurement Interpretation in relation to inserts in the centreboard case: Measurement Interpretation, December 2006: Rule B 5.6.1. The IRC has agreed to permit under rule B 5.6.1 the insertion of a single insert of maximum dimensions 100mm x 80mm x 35mm wide, and wholly above the waterline. This interpretation shall apply for the World Championship 2007 in Adelaide, and thereafter, subject to approval at the AGM, until incorporated into a rule change or rejected by ballot.

Info you need to plan on doing 2007 Europeans in SOPOT: From Holger Jess I have been in Poland to visit the club in Sopot this week on Friday and must say: it all looks really perfect for the event !!!! I have taken several pictures of club house and ground and beach and you soon will find these on: http://www.int505.de I had very good meeting with Piotr and with Krystian, who is the Club Manager and all speak really good english and / or some german We have agreed on all issues which need to be organized and there is no worry anyway as the club has done many events. Club buildings are really nice and only 2 years old and they got more than everything we need: large area, office, meeting rooms, bar & restaurant, 4000 sqm area for camping & mobilhome right beside your boat 4 large change rooms with many showers etc. well - definitly all more than what most clubs in GER or DEN or GBR would have. Logistics: With trailer is is 4-5 hours drive from GER-POL border and the road Sczechin to Gdansk is good main road with very wide lanes so it is easy to overtake as always 1 car can move to side is nearly like motorway but be carefull - some speed cameras in the cities you pass and drive with light on all day only use that main route is shortest and fastest from SWE / DEN / FIN take the ferry either from Karlskrona Stena or Nynashamn POLferry Club works on sponsordeals with ferry companies now by plane if somebody else takes your boat: very easy Gdansk int. Airport is only 15km away there are cheap flights from Kopenhagen, Berlin, Hamburg, London etc. check it yourself easy for overseas teams as well City: Sopot is in the middle between Gdansk and Gdynia and both are big cities and each are 20-30km away but I think you do not need to leave Sopot as there will be so much entertainment there ! Centre of Sopot with really really many bars and restaurants etc. is only 1km from club so you will need a car all week and do not have to worry about some or more beers... Prices: Piotr said they will do entry fee of 250 Euro but that will include everything and food and happy-hour every day and 2 evening partys and cost do not matter all anyway, as I have been out on friday night and it was great - still in November bars where full and good party and beer in bar is only 1 Euro, good longdrink 1,5-2 Euro meal main course maybe 5-6 Euro this all comes with many many really nice eyecatchers...... in summer also many bars on the beach and at the large pier Sailing: The ramp on the beach is only 50-100 meters from dinghy park, the bay is really big and open and the beach is endless They can place the race area whereever suitable depending on direction POL Nationals: Saturday & Sunday Monday: measurement Euro Racing Tuesday till Saturday: 9 races with large party Saturday night so you can still be back home for work by monday morning so Euro can be done with only 5 days away from work for everybody but why not come earlier or stay longer and do some holliday there at the "POL Riviera" So in general I think we can expect to have a perfect location with good timing at end of August not too far to drive and many friendly people running it and a really cheap place to go but with the best party option we can get anywhere ! Many many thanks to Piotr !! Good to see another country within the 505 class developing resulting in the class staying strong and not decreasing.

At the 2006 AGM in Hayling Island, the members approved the following proposals, which now have to put to a ballot of the membership. As these proposals involve changes to the Executive (Class Rules A) and the Measurement Rules (Class Rules B) only boat owning members are permitted to vote. Where two or more members share ownership of a boat, only one vote per boat may be cast.

Over 100 sailing hours of testing and development have been carried out so far using numerous mast and sail combinations. Olympic Gold medallists Jorgen and Jacob Bojsen Moller have been testing with reigning World Champions Szabolcs Majthényi and András Domokos in Hellerup, Denmark. The World Champions have remained with their standard equipment as the ’bench mark’ whilst Jorgen and Jacob have been tweaking rig and sail shapes for the carbon spar. -- Yachts and Yachting, http://www.yachtsandyachting.com/default2.asp?section=11&article=16255

We have 115 pre-registered, 98 confirmed, and 81 paid entries. We should have over 100 teams of 505 sailors enjoying the activities and conditions in Santa Cruz, starting in less than 2 weeks!
The 2 Australian containers have made it to the port and are awaiting customs clearance. The 2 UK and one German containers will arrive in a few days.
The small boat yard is being cleared of keelboats to make room for the 505's and the big tent, which goes up next week. Things are really shaping up nicely.
More information will be posted almost daily on the website, check out a few pictures from the PCC's 2 weeks ago on the Photos & News page. www.505worlds2004.com
