Spanish term or phrase: IMS (Sailing Abbreviation)
I know I promised no more sailing queries.... But I had a last minute entry in my sailing translation :-) So, some more chances for Kudoz points for all you sailors out there.

The context here is that the participants in a regatta are described, in Spanish, as "the elite of the IMS" Later a vessel called "The Zurich" is referred to as the IMS Zurich.

Can anyonone throw any light on this abbreviation?

Explanation:
SEE THIS REFRENCE :

In November 1985 the Offshore Racing Council adopted the System as a second international
rule to stand alongside the International Offshore Rule (IOR) and to provide time allowances for
cruiser/racer type yachts not effectively rated by the IOR. To accord with its international status
the system was renamed the International Measurement System (IMS).

Thanks for the detailed explanation. The other answer looked tempting... but the detail here made it clear that this was what the writer of the SLT was referring to.
