Rule Change Proposals and Members’ Ballot
Throughout it’s 70-year history the Flying Fifteen class has operated a policy of carefully managed evolution, with the result being a class that has not just survived but that has continued to thrive as sailing fashions – and rival designs - have come and gone. This evolution requires periodic tweaks to the class rules and a considerable amount of background work has gone into the preparation of the latest batch of rule change proposals. We now ask that all UKFFA members spend some time considering, and then voting-on, these proposals.
The rule-change ballot is of course conducted by the International Flying Fifteen Association (FFI), but in fact most of the current rule change proposals have come from UK members via the UK Class Association.
The ‘RULE CHANGE BALLOT EXPLANATION’ document (see link at bottom of page) has been produced by FFI and, for each rule change proposal, presents the current wording of the rule, the proposed new wording, and a brief explanation of the reason & intent of the change.
UKFFA strongly endorses these proposals to it’s members
