"Join the Executive"

The International Etchells Class Association of Australia Inc is governed by a committee, which consists of the Fleet Captains, and the resident Australian Governors of the International Fleet. Supplementary to this is the elected Executive, which consists of:

  • President
  • Vice President
  • Secretary
  • Assistant Secretary
  • And Treasurer

The Australian executive looks after the day-by-day interests of the Etchells members both in an operational, and financial manner. It is responsible for the conduct of all sanctioned regattas, the promotion of the Class, and the maintenance of the one-design principles.

Any member is free to nominate for the executive, but must do so no later than seven days prior to the scheduled annual general meeting. The AGM will be held this year in Sydney on 7 August 2017.

Please do not consider that membership of the executive is a closed door, it is not. Further, if you wish to contribute, but not necessarily seek appointment to the executive, there are many ways that your assistance, and participation can be harnessed.

If you would like to put up your hand, please get in touch with Jill Connell at, who will happily work you through the details.
