Our Articles of Association and the 2018 Special Mac addenda were approved. The only changes were an update to the Driver and Crew Eligibility to bring our rules into compliance with the 2018 Class rules. In practice, this is no change from our fleet's previous practices. The Class incorporated what a number of local fleets were doing to help maintain the strength and consistency of our One Design status.

count towards the crew's weight."
