Tour and Seminar Day

Although a spare day is recommended, it is normally excluded. At the northern latitude of Norrköping there are seventeen hours of daylight, which will provide sufficient time for rescheduling due to bad weather. Instead we have scheduled an extra day after the competition, set aside for a tour, probably a boat trip on the Baltic Sea and the archipelago. This day also allows for seminars, where the judges get the opportunity to brief the competitors on rule interpretation as well as other subjects. This is optional, and the fees below for food and accommodation do not include the extra day and the tour. The CIAM Bureau approved of this arrangement.
A tourist programme will also be offered during contest days.




IMPORTANT: The CIAM Bureau has issued a clarification of the previously ambiguous Rule B.3.4 of the Sporting Code:
A competitor is considered to be a junior up to and including the calendar year in which he attains the age of 19 (nineteen). All other competitors who are older are classified as seniors.
Also, the last sentence, This rule... is of course no longer valid.

NOTE: Correction April 3:
The CIAM Bureau has informed us that our interpretation of the rule change is wrong. The age figure should be 18 (eighteen).
