In May ISAF will meet to discuss the disciplines for the 2016 Olympics. The submissions have been released and it seems everyone wants the multihull back in to the Olympics. This is great news for all multihull sailors. ISAF Council will also need to discuss if the have 'mixed', 'open' or men and women multihull disciplines. We hope that the ISAF Council votes on a submission the IHCA submitted having both men and women multihulls. We felt this gave the best reflection on world sailing and promoting world sailing.
