Fellow racers,

The committee are pleased to confirm that we now have 3 Countries who will be hosting a H&O International race this year. The races are as follows:

Heilbronn, Germany. 29 April - 1 May 2017

Bourbon Lancy, France. 1 - 2 July 2017

Gonzaga, Italy. 15 - 17 September 2017

The 3 races will be part of the 2017 H&O League, and the results from all 3 races will count towards the league. The winner of each class will receive a wild card entry to the 2018 World Championship which will be held in Egletons, France. 30 July - 11 August 2018.

The committee have contacted numerous race organisers to see if we could include any H&O races from the East; unfortunately this year we could not find any such races. The committee would like to ask all of our member countries to look at their calendars for 2018 and see if a H&O International may be a possibility.

Good luck to all organisers and competitors alike.

Fellow Racers,

The European Championship page has been updated to give you all the information that you might need if you would like to attend the iMBRA European Championships in Hungary, between the 24th and 27th August 2017.

Fellow Racers,

Following the 2016 World Championships, the new iMBRA committee have been busy discussing the current rules and the lessons we learnt. As such we have made some minor changes to the rules to make them easier to understand and implement.

The rules can be found on the JUDGES page and the RESOURCES pages.

Please make sure that you have had a read through them for the classes that you race, as the judges would hate to give you a card for something that you didn't know.

See you all soon,

The iMBRA Committee

Fellow Racers,

Vrolijk Kerstfeest, 聖誕節快樂, Fröhliche Weihnachten, Buon Natale, Joyeux Noël, Boldog Karácsonyt, Vesel Božič, God Jul, Cчастливого Рождества, Feliz Navidad.

It certainly has been a very busy, but worthwhile 2016. The iMBRA World Championships were an amazing event, and the iMBRA Leagues are going from strength to strength.

2017 is looking like it will be even bigger and better with the introduction of our first Endurance European Championships in Hungary, and we are hoping to confirm very soon a Hydro and Offshore European Championships as well.

So thank you to all those people that have made 2016 a massive success, and those who are already helping with 2017.

Hopefully Father Christmas brings everyone boat related presents!!!
