And by tradition – the Round Table
According to the website http://www.parusniy-sport.org, at the Spartak yacht club, a round table was traditionally held at the end of the season, organized by the Council of Class Associations.
The event was attended by representatives of associations of yacht classes, yacht clubs, sailing schools, student sections. Representatives of yacht class associations talked about how their classes are developing, their experience and interesting suggestions. The fast-growing fleet of yachts "Rocket-670" was presented, which may soon take shape as a new class of yachts.
The eM-Ka class association shared its experience in organizing complex events with the participation of representatives of several yacht fleets, the Micro Association – by opening a competition venue in Kazan, the Flying Dutchman Association – its success in developing the class throughout Russia and wide participation in international competitions. Victor Pilgunov spoke about his school in the Laser class.
Particularly relevant were the issues of arranging categories, admitting athletes to official competitions and including competitions in official calendars of sports events. Attention was drawn to the need to include competitions in the calendars of the ECT of the Ministry of Sports and / or the regional calendar formed by the regional federation, the preparation of reports on the competitions and the proper formation of a panel of judges. A number of associations shared their positive experience in arranging categories for athletes through the Sailing Federation of the Moscow Region.
The round table participants noted the negative effect of the separation of calendars and judicial boards of Moscow and the Moscow region – this began to cause confusion among the organizing organizations in the formation of competition calendars, passing approvals, and the previously achieved synergy effect began to be lost.
A separate topic was the holding of complex events and the unification of associations of classes of yachts and fleets for competitions. It was noted that there were enough resources to conduct, and the combination of yacht classes would help optimize costs and the formation of judicial boards, as well as strengthen communication between teams and the mutual exchange of riders. As the main difficulties that need to be solved for combining the fleets at the competitions, the sizes of the entry fees were announced (a solution is required in the range of not more than 300-500 rubles per person per day), dispersal of basing, requiring the organization of registration for the competitions distributed across yacht clubs, organization of the movement of athletes from several yacht clubs to one at the award ceremony and then back.
It was told about a new project – the Club Cup. A number of participants and organizers of the competitions, who closely monitor the development of this project, noted that events for charter fleets and for riders on their own boats require a different approach, and it is necessary to transfer the experience of some competitions to others with great care.
The student theme was also touched. Representatives of associations and fleets talked about what special preferential conditions they provide to students.
In general, we got a very interesting and constructive conversation. Many heard interesting ideas for themselves, and agreements were reached on joining forces in holding some competitions.
The Council of Class Associations thanks everyone who has been able to attend this meeting.
