Calling All Yachtsmen

The International Sailing Federation has posted an article on their website about proposed guidelines for ballast water exchange. Their hope is to get approval for these guidelines, which are designed for ships less than 50 meters in length, from the International Maritime Organization. They are currently seeking comments from yacht owners and builders, asking that they be submitted before an IMO meeting on February 9th. Links to the guidelines and associated documents can be found at the bottom of the page.
