ISAF Olympic revolution, SOF, dinghies, speed sailing and more...


'49er - London 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition'    © Ingrid Abery

A revolutionary proposal designed to increase the value of Olympic class sailing at all levels is to be presented to the ISAF Council in mid-November 2013 in Oman.

This proposal will have a major impact on the current Olympic Class World Championships which will, if this proposal is accepted, be completely restructured. Under this proposal the existing World Cup circuit will be dismantled as current venue contracts expire and a completely new set of events will replace them.

There are clearly going to be a lot of interest groups who stand to win or lose if this proposal is accepted.

Over the last decade some of the ISAF decisions have been not been as good as they could have been.

Some plainly very ordinary ISAF Olympic Class decisions have been reversed after outcry so it is hoped that MNA’s, Council delegates and Classes and individual Olympic campaigners will spend the time to understand this new proposal. We have the introduction and the presentation on Sail-World now.

Last weekend a fleet of 46 dinghies competed in the 2013 London Regatta, held on the Greenwich stretch of the River Thames. The annual one day full-closure test of the Thames Barrier made the river a temporary non-tidal waterway with no through traffic.

Despite the generally very light winds, Northampton Sailing Club provided a fitting battle of former champions for the 2013 OK Dinghy Inland Championship. Nick Craig was the favourite to take a seventh title, but didn't have it all his own way with former world champion Jim Hunt still looking for his first UK title and recent National Champion Robert Deaves going for the double. Meanwhile, the current inland champion Terry Curtis didn't show much of the form that has won him a pile of titles over the past decade.

Team15 Champions Cup -  RYA  

This weekend, at Northampton Sailing Club, Youth windsurfing teams are getting ready to hit the water on the 12th and 13th October to compete in the Team15 (T15) national final, the T15 Champions Cup. The event will see around 90 young windsurfers from across the UK take to the water to battle it out in a bid to win the prestigious title of Team15 National Champions 2013. The seven windsurfing teams have earned their places after winning a series of highly competitive regional heats in the T15 Inter-Club Championship that took place throughout the UK this summer.
