4. President's report and UK Regional Report

On behalf of the UK tasar Association and UK sailors I  am please to make a report to the World Tasar Council at Hayling Island UK

 In 2018 as a warm up to the worlds planned for 2019 at Hayling Island the Association held a UK Nationals event at Hayling to build interest and iron out some of the measurement challenge's associated with the long construction period of the boat. The event gave a great mix of old and new boats with 40 competing with Craig Mcphee and Gilian Berry of Australia winning and putting a marker down for the worlds. A Uk Nationals was not initially planned for 2019 with the proximity of the worlds however in response to sailor requests a last minute event was called seeing a  reduced fleet due to short notice and calendar timing. The use of the new sausage first, dual leeward mark saw some  very close racing with Paul and Bronwyn Ridgway of Australia  taking the title.

 Interest in the tasar in the UK continues to wax a and wane however with worlds interest new boats have been purchased and  a 15 boat fleet develop at Hisc which we are hopeful will remain strong

Since  the AGM at Gamagori I have had the honour to be Tasar Wolds President I would like to pay tribute to Chris Payne  who has worked tirelessly to introduce measurement changes associated with the dagger box changes, boom becket position and construction. Some concerns have recently been raised around the supply chain for new masts which now appears to have been resolved
