Poll: Which New Olympic Format Should Sailing Adopt

For those who follow Olympic sailing closely, the outcome of the mid-year meeting this past May set the stage for what events will be in the 2024 Olympic Games.

Those of us in attendance were left with little doubt that the intention of the Council, at the time of the vote at least, was to have the 470 and Finn be retained, even if their forms might change. The slate proposed by M22-18 had very clear arguments in the ‘Reasons’ section outlining very clearly the slate aimed to have a mixed 470 and a Finn with a Woman’s singlehander included.

Recently however, an official interpretation was released by world sailing dictating that none of the reasoning is official, and the only official restrictions going forward are only what’s written in the submission itself, which is not very much.

The board event formats were already up for discussion, certainly the kitesurf, which is new. So have you say!
