When the Board voted to increase the age of participation at the Masters there was an overwhelming response from you, the sailors. The discussion started at the World Masters regatta in Spain, and continued through e-mails and Snipe Today. Because of the feedback a motion was submitted to the Board to keep the Masters Age at 45. The Board has voted and the results are that the age for participating in the Masters is again 45, with the Skipper and Crew combining for 80 years of age. I would like to thank the Board for reconsidering this issue. I would also like to thank all the sailors that expressed their opinions both for and against.
