Just fit an aqualung to your buoyancy aid Grumpf for any rough weather D0 sailing. Even on a lake with no waves it seems to go through the water rather than over the waves which looks fun if a little difficult to breath!!

Report by World Sailing - http://www.sailing.org/tools/documents/EQCSP4biiiMenWomenOnePersonDinghy-[24944].pdf?fbclid=IwAR0kdvGpi7MM4v9-R672-SIQXuXb7wBgdKDR5f_wmdgw1Gz3GpSHyx8Zh0U

Interesting scores in the matrix. Suggest that for the actual sailing (Athletic Suitability and Performance) the Laser is still the best boat but they fall down on quality of build and standardization. 

Maybe this is why it is all kicking off in Laser land..!!

Probably will all be ignored and the Finn will be chosen with a small women's rig...

Can see why ILCA are kicking off, they're definitely in the frame to lose it if that report is anything to go by, explains a lot.

Love the sentence about the d-zero

‘With a mainsheet traveler and multiple options to adjust the mast rake the boat was considered the option where in addition to athletic superiority, success would be more related to the technical knowledge of the equipment.’

Mast rake and traveler systems too technical for Olympians - speaks volumes as to why the Finn was kicked out
