The results of December’s Cowes Week Poll, questioning if the Captain’s Cup Points Series should change from 8 to 7 races (with 1 discard), were discussed at the January Class Committee meeting. Replies had been received from 42% of members and 55% of these replies (representing 24% of members) were in favour of changing to 7 days. The Class Committee agreed that the 8 race Captain’s Cup Series was a Class Rule and therefore, an AGM resolution was needed to change it. They agreed to present the question to the membership at the 2018 AGM in November, when members would be asked to ratify their views as expressed in the Poll result and vote on the issue. Thus, there will be no change to the Captain’s Cup Series for 2017.
