Sail-World.com : ISAF Specialist Committees agree Olympic Equipment

ISAF Specialist Committees agree Olympic Equipment

'ISAF Equipment Committee for Olympic Games equipment selection'    ISAF ©
The ISAF Council decided the ten events for the Olympic Sailing Competition last year and will decide the equipment for those events this year during their meeting on Friday 14 November.

Two specialist Committees have already made their recommendations to that meeting - they both voted for the 29erXX as the Women's dinghy and the Elliott 6m as the Match racing boat.


As part of the decision-making process of the Conference, several of the specialist Committees have voted on the issue and then pass their recommendation from that vote to help inform the final decision of the ISAF Council.

The Match Racing Committee looked specifically at the equipment for the women’s match racing event on Sunday, but Tuesday the Women’s Sailing Committee addressed the four women’s sailing events, whilst the Equipment Committee considered all ten events.

The list of possible equipment is based upon Submissions received in accordance with the ISAF Regulations. This list was based on the list made by the ISAF Council during the May Mid-Year meetings, with the proviso that the Council also noted selection of equipment for dinghy events for the 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition will not be open to multihulls.

The Women’s Sailing Committee voted in favour of the following equipment:

Ballot 1: Women’s Windsurfing – RS:X
Ballot 3: Women’s 1 Person Dinghy – Laser Radial
Ballot 6: Women’s 2 Person Dinghy – 29er XX
Ballot 9: Women’s Keelboat Match – Elliott 6m

The Equipment Committee voted in favour of the following equipment:

Ballot 1: Women’s Windsurfing – RS:X
Ballot 2: Men’s Windsurfing – RS:X
Ballot 3: Women’s 1 Person Dinghy – Laser Radial
Ballot 4: Men’s 1 Person Dinghy – Laser
Ballot 5: Men’s 1 Person Dinghy (heavyweight) – Finn
Ballot 6: Women’s 2 Person Dinghy – 29er XX
Ballot 7: Men’s 2 Person Dinghy – 470
Ballot 8: Men’s 2 Person Dinghy (high performance) – 49er
Ballot 9: Women’s Keelboat Match – Elliott 6m
Ballot 10: Men’s Keelboat – Star

The recommendations from the Women’s and Equipment Committees will now be considered by the Events Committee before they vote on the equipment in their meeting Wednesday. All three Committees will also pass their recommendation onto the ISAF Council who will make the decision on the Olympic equipment on their meeting on Friday 14 November.
