BOAT REGISTRATION FEE: The Boat Registration Fee for the 2011 season will be €60.00. This amount also covers the Individual Membership of the Registered Owner.
INDIVIDUAL MEMBERSHIP: The National Council has decided to re-introduce the individual membership ruling. This requires each crew member at a J24 sanctioned event to be an individual member of the Class. The subscription level for individual membership for the 2011 season will be €10 with a reduction to €5 for full time students or those under 21 years of age at the date of the relevant event.
These are “one-off” payments covering the entire season, and we would appeal to crew members to have some sympathy for their financially hard pressed skippers, and pay their own subscriptions! Application forms for both types of Membership are available from Flor O’Driscoll.
International J/24 Class (see rules at www.j24ireland.com)
Lough Erne’s J/24s are part of the world’s most numerous and widespread fin-keel international one-design class. Class Rule 1.1 defines the J/24 as a one-design class created to fulfil the diverse needs of recreational sailors such as cruising, one-design racing, day sailing and handicap racing. These rules are intended to preserve important design characteristics: ease of handling, low cost of ownership, safety and comfort.
It is the responsibility of an owner to ensure that the yacht complies at all times with the current class rules and that a copy of the Measurement Certificate and the Inventory of Required and Optional Equipment (Rule 3.7.3) are kept aboard the yacht.
No yacht shall race unless the owner(s) and helmsman(men) are full members of an NJCA or the IJCA.
No yacht shall race without a current J/24 Class Association membership sticker placed on the outer face of the transom near the upper starboard.
