In May, a ballot was mailed to DN North American class members so that you could vote for Commodore, Vice-Commodore, Secretary, and Treasurer. There were also two other proposals on the ballot.

Secretary Geoff Sobering counted the ballots and released the results:

75 Ballots were received before the July 1 deadline.

The Exec. Comm. was re-elected essentially unanimously.
There were three write-ins for Commodore.

"The Annual Meeting shall be held during and in the vicinity of the
North American Championships, or the DN World Championship when held
in North America if possible."
73 Yes, 1 No, 1 Abstention

"The Board may allow sponsorship at IDNIYRA events, so long as said
sponsorship shall benefit the organization as a whole, and not any
individual competitor or group of sailors."
68 Yes, 3 No, 4 Abstention
