So if you are a member of your national authority and have a properly registered/measured/certificated boat, you may cross borders and enter events in other countries. You still must comply with event measurement controls as specified in the NOR. The arrangement also allows such a member to charter a local boat in order to compete.

Usually it is not a problem as most regattas can always handle a few more boats. The IOM class sometimes uses country ranking systems to manage entries for 'over-subscribed' events.

Fair enough.
Need a deep enough, open enough, big enough hosting pond for the international guests to put their boats in.
