Dear President and Friend

Dear President and Friend;

During the recent XLIII General Ordinary Assembly of the Central American and Caribbean Sports Organization (CACSO), taken place in the city of Veracruz in Mexico with the participation of all 32member countries, the case of the Netherlands Antilles’ NOC was raised and discussed.We are deeply concerned by the fact that a NOC who has received the IOC’s recognition in 1950 andthat is affiliated to our organization since 1946 may lose its recognition due to an alteration in politicalstatus,… 

AGM Netherlands Antilles Olympic Committee

A few days ago the Netherlands Antilles Olympic Committee had an AGM in which it amended her constitution in such a way that it is in line with the new political situation. It was a very well attended meeting with 22 out of 33 member federations with representatives from Curacao, SXM, Bonaire and St. Eustatius. Eventually the presented constitution was accepted with a great majority. 81 pro, 2 contra, 12 obstained. The flag and national anthem have not been addressed. The flag and  “national” anthem” will stay the same for the time being.

Netherlands Antilles Olympic Committee

The Netherlands Antilles has ceased to exist, but the International Olympic Committee (IOC) will for the time being continue to recognise the Netherlands Antilles Olympic Committee (NAOC) for the territory of the former Netherlands Antilles. Therefore all International Olympic Federations, including the International Sailing Federation (ISAF) are expected to continue to recognise the Netherlands Antilles Sailing Federation for the territory of the former Netherlands Antilles as long as the IOC will continue to recognise the NAOC . So you and your members can continue to participate in and/or organise sailing events through NASAF as your ISAF Member National Authority (MNA).

IOC has indicated that until 2012 nothing will change. The situation after 2012 is insecure.
