ISAF conference finall decisions

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

Day 2 of the ISAF council meeting here in San Juan, Puerto Rico, came to an end with a couple of more inportant decisions regarding kiteboarding.

First of all, Kiteboarding will have an own rules appendix for the course racing discipline in the printed 2013-2016 edition of the racing rules of sailing. The rules for our other disciplines will be kept evolving.

Out plan is to use the new rulebook, which is an updated version of appendix BB, already from 2012 for all competitions.

The other important decision today was with regard to the selection of kiteboarding as Olympic discipline. Trials will be held beginning of next year, together with the trials for the womens skiff and the mixed multihull. Word is that this will be done in Santander, Spain, in April, but as council has also urged ISAF to decide on all equipment already in the midyear May meeting, this might change.

Things are definately moving forward for us, and kiteboarding again received strong support from all around the world of sailing, however it is still a long to go and we will have to discuss during the next days and weeks what the best strategy is. Fingers crossed !
