IOM Yacht Measurement - adopted August 2015
We agreed to adopt the proposal for “Sedgemoor MBC IOM Yacht Definition” at the last club meeting in August. It basically means we now have some written rules covering what we (SMBC) define as a IOM Yacht.

THE 12 MONTH GRACE PERIOD HAS NOW FINISHED - so you must now comply!
If you already have a IOM Measurement Certificate and it has been maintained in line with the current International One Metre Class Rules then that is fine.
But if you have made any performance related changes or you are not sure if the changes you have made effect its compliance – ask Scott.
Please note; the “Sedgemoor MBC Statement of Compliance” is exactly that, so you do not need to a member of the MYA to get your boat checked by Scott. BUT this alone does not allow you entry to race in MYA events – you’ll still need to be a MYA member and have a valid MYA issued Measurement Certificate.
Meetings/round & overall series scoring system - adopted April 2015
Each round of a series will be scored with points awarded for the place you finished in. 1st place receives 25 points, 2nd – 24pts, 3rd – 23pts, 4th - 22 and so on to 1 point for 25th and over. So you will get points for where you finish in each round no matter how many races were run or the number of skippers that were taking part. The current individual round/meeting scoring system and race discards will remain exactly as it is now - this only applies to the overall scoring for a series (ie; Winter, Spring, Summer or Weds nights).
If you miss a round obviously you score 0 points, assuming all rounds in a series are run your lowest 2 round scores will be discarded.

Normally the Match Racing event is run once or twice a year. As name suggests it is racing for two IOM Yachts a time. Full rules for the event are here;
