The International Vaurien Class Association (IVCA)

is also known as the Comité International du Vaurien (CIV).

The IVCA or CIV is the governing body of the International Vaurien Class Association. There are two annual meetings of the CIV: The summer meeting during the World Championship and the winter meeting, which traditionally is held in Paris at the beginning of December. Just before these meetings, the Vaurien Technical Comitee, which adminsters the Vaurien Class rules, convenes.

The official statutes of the CIV can be found here.
