Skeeta - the new Foiling-Dinghy by Quantboats

During their stay on the Bermudas, the America's-Cup sailors supported by the AC design teams tuned the Foiler Moth to an extent that cost to remain competitive started to get prohibitive. At the same time, one-design Foiling Moths were launched above all in Australia to allow "flying" at reasonable cost.
The latest One-Person-Foiler-Dinghy is the "Skeeta", a joint project of Australian Moth developers, launched in Europe by QUANTBOATS. Here all details with prices and a video.

Olympic Classes - World Sailing Midyear Meeting - London GBR - Final results

 Olympic Classes - World Sailing Midyear Meeting - London GBR - Final results As we reported yesterday, the World Sailing Midyear Meeting came to an end yesterday with a compromising-looking decision in favor of Submission M22, retaining five of the ten Olympic Events (Laser Standard, Laser Radial, 49er, 49erFX, Nacra-17). Windsurfing men and women will remain as well, to be decided on what board and with/without foils. Three events have still to be defined: for the Finn, a "mixed singlehanded event" (men 100kg, women 70kg), for the 470 a "Mixed two-person Dinghy event and a "Mixed Kite" event.
Hot discussions will continue until the final decision World Sailing Annual Meeting in Sarasota/Floriad USA in November.

 World Sailing - Midyear Meeting - London GBR - the lastest information .. not any better Please find here the well edited right on the point news and comments by the former IYRU/ISAF and US Sailing Executive Tom Ehman USA in Sailing Illustrated of today and yesterday.
1) Council adopted Submission M22 changing 5 of the 10 Olympic events. Here the comment.
2) Another important discussion point was the financial situation. Over the weekend, the annual accounts (financial reports) were presented to the Council. Bottom line, 2017 operating loss was £5.2m ($7.1m), 44% of the 2016 IOC TV revenues; will WS go broke in 2019? Here the comment.

World Sailing - Midyear Meeting - London GBR - unbelievable !

We expressed yesterday our concerns about the Midyear Meeting underway now with the definition of the 10 Olympic events for 2024 (Paris/Marseille) Olympics as main subject on the Agenda.
If one thought, that the confusion was big enough, the unexpected surprise was that yesterday morning, there has been an unprecedented and almost unbelievable development in the continuing controversy surrounding the selection. WS President Kim Andersen DEN has made a "President's Late Submission" via letter emailed yesterday morning to Member National Authorities and WS delegates which, he made clear, "is a personal submission, not a World Sailing Board submission." Here is his his submission.
Never before, a President tried to influence this most important decision with a "late submission" not discussed with his Board. I wonder, how the responsible Delegates present in London, most of them without any practical exposure to Olympic Classes racing, not to speak about the Games, will come to a solution in the interest of our sport.

World Sailing - Midyear Meeting - London GBR - a personal comment

Let's assume the IOC decided now to eliminate sailing from the 2024 Olympic Sports? This slapstick comedy in London would be ended immediately, because there is no need at all to overturn the sport from the top ! Good boats, good class organisations, and above sailors loving their sport (including the Kiters) would influence how top performance sailing would look like, and this within the framework of Racing and Equipment Rules, and a coordinated Events structure ... as was the idea when IYRU was founded in 1906.
Did anybody imagine, how these in vitro events would look like around the world outside of the Games? In your country, your region .. in your club? Just non-existent! The targeted “growing global audience” is an absolute illusion.
There is no rationale at all for such a dramatic change in Olympic events !
