*Dinghy & One Design Keelboat Convention deferred to 30th November*

The ISA Dinghy & One Design Keelboat Advisory Group are very encouraged by the level of feedback received to date in advance of the forthcoming meeting scheduled for Saturday the 2nd of November. However the meeting will have most value if as many classes as possible can be represented. 

Because of the unavoidable absence of some key representatives the Advisory Group has taken a decision to defer the meeting until the 30th of November. 

Dinghy & One Design Keelboats Convention
Date: Saturday, 30th of November
Time: 10.15am
Venue: JB Room in the National Yacht Club, Dun Laoghaire
Chair: Margaret O’Donnell

This will allow those extra voices to represent their classes. The Advisory Group hopes this does not cause too much inconvenience for anyone planning to attend on Saturday and would ask that you forward this notice to anyone whom you think was hoping to attend. 

If you have any further information you would like to share in advance of the meeting, please send it to me directly at mgtodnl@gmail.com.

Best wishes,
Margaret Kneafsey 
Chair
