Presidents Report 2021

The first year of my presidency is nearing an end and I am offering to continue for another year to continue the implementation of our planned agenda.??

Regattas: Attendance at regattas has been variable with some lightly supported events as well as some with good numbers. The Radio Marlborough Challenge drew very good support with a couple of North Islanders being tempted into making the trip. For those wanting hard fought heat racing the South Island is the place to find it. There are some skilled racers and top boats on the mainland. This augers well for the 2022 Nationals and I would encourage North Islanders wanting 'top level heat racing' to consider attending.

The North Island continues to be relatively light on numbers with the 'offshore series' and other events, there have been murmurings that perhaps the offshore format is growing a little stale. Any ideas of what type of events should be on offer in all reality goes back to the individual clubs to host the type of events they want to, and at this stage only one NI venue offers heat racing events.

Rule book: A 2021 edition was released incorporating all previous parts into one indexed volume. This is an ongoing project with an updated version at the beginning of each year incorporating changes ratified in the previous year. It is anticipated that the amount of changes will reduce as years go by indicating that we are being successful in fine tuning the rules we run by and they are 'fit for purpose'.

The website is still a work in progress (WIP) that has been hampered somewhat by the effort expended on the rulebook.

Membership is holding steady and increasing slightly thanks in part to the 'subs holiday' this year for 2020 current members on the back of the disrupted covid19 year of 2020.

The one day/event regatta fee is working as intended with 'lapsed members' taking up the offer to go racing at NZMPBA events. There are encouraging signs that as they slot back into racing they will become full members again.

The 'Presidents Cup' points scoring format is undergoing a revamp to recognise members performance over four event categories in a standardised weighting manner such that no one event category earns a disproportionate amount of points. The points on offer at a Nationals will then contribute a larger (50%) proportion of points for the year.

Thanks to the committee for your input throughout the year in what has been a mammoth task.

I wish boaters well for the year ahead, stay healthy, build for reliability and race hard. Hope to see you on the water.

Peter Collier
NZMPBA President

PS. After the postponed 21st August AGM and Taupo Offshore due to Nationwide Covid 19 lockdowns and lingering pandemic, entries in north island regattas were adversely affected resulting in the majority of regattas being cancelled. South island regattas continued post lockdown with good support when weather permitted. Here's hoping for a better 2022 and a great Easter Nationals.
