2018 NATIONALS

As no Club has indicated an interest there will be no Nationals in 2018

GENERAL BUSINESS

1. RULE BOOK is a shambles and needs sorting especially downloads on web site

Peter has successfully downloaded off web site so Nitro can up date.

2. Electronic Lap counting
Bayden Sproden has done another test run with the Masterton boys and everything ran perfectly even with carbon fibre boats with no issues.

It is suggested we need to now work out how we can work with him to get the system working for us full time at our regattas.

Trevor reported Bayden is suggesting in future competitors buy the transponders and the clubs hire the software to use it.

A member would only ever need to purchase 1 transponder that can be used in all boats the may be running. They just need a holder for the transponder in each hull.

( John to make contact with Bayden to see if he can come up to Tauranga and Taupo regattas in a couple of weeks so the system can be tested at offshore and heat racing )

3. REMINDER
ALL PETROL BOATS MUST HAVE IGNITION DISABLING DEVICES
INSTALLED AND WORKING FROM 1 JANUARY 2018 TO COMPETE AT NZMPBA SANCTIONED REGATTAS AS PER RULE BOOK. (General rules section)

IT HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO THE COMMITTEE’S ATTENTION THAT A COMPETITOR AT THE WELLINGTON OFFSHORE WHO HAD KILL SWITCH ISSUES , DISCONNECTED HIS IGNITION KILL SWITCH IN ORDER THAT HE COULD CONTINUE RACING.
THIS WAS NOT MADE KNOWN TO THE RACE OFFICIALS UNTIL AFTER THE EVENT.

As this is a health and safety issue and breaking the NZMPBA rules It is the committee’s unanimous decision that in future should any competitor be found guilty of doing this they will lose all points gained at that regatta and as well be stood down for the following two sanctioned regattas on the NZMPBA Calendar for that year.

Nationals venue and date required for 2019 if any club interested!
We need feedback from the general membership whether in fact they want any nationals in the future

Presidents Cup Points
The committee has been looking at a minor tweaking of the points scoring system for the offshore series ( with membership input) as the current system disproportionately favours the events in this series for Presidents Cup points.
For offshore only it is proposed that we combine the class and overall points then divide by 2 to score points for the Presidents cup, to make the points system fairer.

Offshore rules
A review is pending on a tweak of the rules regarding things that are not being done properly or can be dispensed with at regattas.

Work in progress

Next NZMPBA Committee meeting Monday 7th May, 2018 8.00pm
