On the second day of its Mid-Year meeting in Sestra, Italy, the ISAF Council have voted in favour of the NACRA17 being the class/equipment for the new Mixed Multihull event to be sailed at the 2016 Olympics.

The Council vote was decisive at 20 votes to 15 - an improvement over the Events Committee where the NACRA17 only made it as preferred boat by virtue of the Chairman, Chris Atkins' casting vote.

The Nacra17 is the longest of the boats entered in the trials, and with the most beam and sail area.

The Evaluation Summary reads:

The clear preference of the MNA Sailors and the Evaluation Panel was the innovative new NACRA 17.
Designed specifically for the Mixed Multihull criteria the Evaluation Panel concluded the NACRA 17 is seen
as the best option. Featuring curved dagger boards providing vertical lift, the NACRA 17 will carry a wider –
range of crew weight better than the 16 footers and is considerably lighter than a Formula 18. The modern
NACRA 17 also offers the sailors in the Mixed Multihull Event the exciting challenge of mastering the
potential lift of the curved daggerboards.
