Summary: Mixed Worlds
Constitution By-Laws x Class Rules
x Deed of Gift Rules of Conduct x NoR or SI Template
Objective: To award a recognition to the best mixed crew of the world
Proposal (include current & proposed changed wording- changes to be shown in red):
To include in the Deed of gifts of the Master Worlds a previous regatta for mixed crews, not restricted by age and award to the winner the tittle of : SCIRA mixed International Champion.
I propose the following conditions:
9 mixed races in 3 days.
Maximum wind 15 knots
W-L course with finish line at the second leeward mark. (4 legs)
Race time between 45 and 60 minutes.
Rest day and following the Master worlds
I propose that a perpetual trophy must be made by SCIRA, and must carry the name of the winner of a poll made online between sailors worldwide , y propose it to be made on Snipe Today´s platform.
For more than a decade, mixed crews had show not only an excellent level of competition but a number exceeding by far juniors and women together, while no competition or recognition to them was awarded.
ISAF rules are not allowing to have an independent and official Mixed World Championship. Not even to replace a JR or Women World.
Only the mixed can be awarded as a World Championship if replaces the Master World.
The Master World, together with the senior, is the most successful and competitive we had and there is no sense on even thinking of replace it.
So what I propose is exactly what we are doing with success at the South American regatta for more than a decade.
A 3 days mixed event(in the case of the South American it is raced together with the master event), a rest day, and following 4 days of the open South American (including juniors).
Yes, is a bigger effort for the host, but they get a lot of entries, rental boats sometimes can be rented twice so the price of the rental decreases and is very fun.
Many crews of the master fleet are mixed, so they can race 2 regattas and get the most from 1 plane ticket.
With a smart race course it can be held with a minimum of effort and can be good as practice for the major event.
As an example, at the 2012 WH&O we had a practice regatta with 6 races, and we changed the RO for the major event because of not following some class rules several times (on wind and courses). It was a good practice that allowed us to see also that we needed a few more support boats.

The low participation of Women crews in Snipe championships, seriously jeopardizes the future of them. For that reason, the objective is to attract other crews to these championships that abound in our class to enhance women’s championship and make it attractive. Affects: X Constitution X Deed of Gift
Objective: To create a mixed category (men and women) where such the woman as the man can be the skipper. Proposal: Option a) The new mixed category will sail at the same time that women, with the same Deed of Gift but with different classifications and prizes. Option b) To modify the Women Championship ́s Deed of Gift. In that case such as the woman as the man can be inscribe themselves as the skipper. Option c) To create a new mixed class inside Snipe Class with mixed crews integrated by a woman and a man. Any of them can be the skipper. If the option a) or c) are chosen, I pledge to donate a perpetual trophy por this purpose. If the option b) is chosen I pledge to donate a Perpetual trophy for the European Championship of this new category. Reasons: The low participation of Women crews in Snipe championships, seriously jeopardizes the future.
