ICRA Commodore Simon McGibney has issued the agenda for tonight's EGM to be held at 7.30pm Maldron Hotel in Portlaoise.

The meeting will vote on new candidates for the ICRA executive and will also vote on a new constitution. 

The final reminder – issued via Facebook last night – comes as the cruiser racer body prepares to adopt an 'interim' constitution after a turbulent time for the organisation.

McGibney says he is looking forward to 'a productive session for Cruiser Racing in Ireland'. 

ICRA EGM Agenda

- Apologies
- Presentation of Interim Constitution
- Vote on the introduction of the Interim Constitution
- Presentation of Candidates to Executive
- Vote on Executive
- Any other Business

A further ICRA message on social media says: "In order to ensure that ICRA continues to receive the strong support of members, it was agreed to review the constitution, reinforce good governance, transparency and accountability". 
The message continues: "It was agreed that an EGM would be held as quickly as possible, with all members invited to attend. In order to do this before the sailing season begins in earnest, and due to the cluttered rugby and sailing calendar during March, the date of the meeting was agreed as Wednesday the 21st March 2018 in the Maldron Hotel, Portlaoise at 7.30pm".
