Critical discussions at ISAF Mid-Year Meeting

ISAF ©
The eyes of the sailing world are focusing on Stresa, Italy for the ISAF Mid-Year Meeting which is set to take place there from 3-6 May 2012. Following the Equipment Committee meeting on 28 April in Southampton, Great Britain, the Audit, Events and Executive Committees will gather along with the ISAF Council.

The hot topics up for discussion are the evaluation trials for the Women’s Skiff and Mixed Multihull equipment and kiteboarding format for the Rio 2016 Olympic Sailing Competition.

After an in depth equipment and format evaluation period from 17-25 March at the Prince Felipe High Performance Sailing Centre in Santander, Spain, detailed reports, analysis and recommendations have been published.

Kiteboarding will also be on the agenda in Stresa with its possible inclusion at the 2016 Olympic Games. ISAF Council will decide between Kiteboarding and/or windsurfing following a recommendation from the Kiteboarding evaluation group that specified that Kiteboarding could become an ISAF event from 2013 onwards. View footage from the Kiteboarding Format Evaluations here.

The ISAF Council will meet on 4 and 5 May to discuss the recommendations and expert opinion recommendation from the evaluation panels, the Equipment Committee and the Events Committee and make their decisions.
