International Etchells Class Association of Australia
Those who entered the January 2022 Adelaide Nationals have been informed that the event will not go ahead as scheduled.
The IECAA and Adelaide Fleet are disappointed about this, as are the skippers and crews who were looking forward to taking part. However after
consultation with Fleet Captains across Australia it was clear that there were an insufficient number of competitors to justify holding the event.
Fleet Captains and members have indicated this is for a number of reasons, including the remaining uncertainty around border closures for some states, as
well as the fact that many are considering other activities with their families after a long period of COVID lockdown.
We are confident Etchells regatta sailing will become more viable over the coming months. We'll use our December Fleet Captains meeting to explore alternative options for holding a Nationals in 2022.
This is a reminder to all Etchells owners that when they buy an Etchells they need to apply for a new measurement certificate from Australian Sailing. At, select "Transfer of Ownership of Second Hand boat" from the drop down list of options next to "Registration Type". You will be asked to pay $45 and will receive a new Measurement Certificate by email. You will be required to show this certificate when you register for regattas. Also, unless your name is on a boat’s measurement certificate you are not considered an Owner (Active member) for the purpose of voting on Class matters.
