Boardsports selected for the 2016 Olympic Games

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

It was the most packed session we have had this week here in Athens at the ISAF Annual Conference to hear the ISAF Events Committee’s recommendation on the provisional Olympic events and equipment for 2016.

This is how the voting went...


The Events Committee recommends:

Windsurf or Kiteboard for men and women – equipment evaluation

One person dinghy men – Laser Standard

One person dinghy women – Laser Radial

Two person dinghy (skiff) men – 49er

Two person dinghy (skiff) women – equipment evaluation

Second one person dinghy men – Finn

Two person mixed multihull – equipment evaluation

Two person mixed dinghy with spinnaker – 470

Women’s keelboat – Elliott 6m

In so doing the committee’s voting recommends taking out the men’s keelboat. The second one person dinghy for women was the other option not to be selected.

The Committee’s recommendations are of course just that. They will go to the ISAF Council for consideration this weekend. After Council vote they are then subject to confirmation at the ISAF Mid-Year meeting in May 2011.
