Yachting New Zealand has just issued the following statement regarding the selection of Events for the 2012 Olympic Games:

'The Board of Yachting New Zealand has resolved to make a submission to the ISAF mid year meeting requesting that the Events slate for the 2012 Olympic Games be revisited.

'The Board consulted with the Olympic Committee and the High Performance Committee on the matter and made the decision to make such a submission based on the longer term view of the future of sailing at the Olympics rather than the specific medal opportunities at the 2012 Games.'
