Proposals - the following proposals were submitted and voted on at the general meeting:
- Pulling Boat: Change the course to a u-shaped course. This was not voted on as the committee felt that they are unable to guarantee a specific shape of course. However it is generally agreed that in its current location, a u-shaped course is important and the committee will look at all options in order to make that happen for the 2016 regatta. Final vote decision: No vote was made- administrative change
- Mariner Quiz: Change the quiz to reduce the number of questions that relate to other subjects already quizzed at the regatta, and increase the number of questions relating to areas that were underrepresented on the quiz (e.g. uniform parts). Final vote decision: No vote was made- administrative change
- Semaphore: Eliminate the event. Final vote decision: No.
- Ring Buoy: A change to the scoring of the heaving line event; if the ring were to touch the front of the target, then the throw would count. Final vote decision: No.
- Ship Swimming: A change to how the penalties are scored; the final result reduces the penalty applied to rule infractions. Final vote decision: Yes
- Radio: Change how the radio event is completed by crew members, more emphasis on using the radio and less on spelling and punctuation. Final vote decision: Yes
