Summary Of Day Two

Sailing was cancelled at 15:00 local time in Santander on the second day of the 2016 Equipment Evaluations.

Dick Batt, Evaluation Chairman, said, “Unfortunately we made the difficult decision to cancel sailing for the day at 15:00. It has been a frustrating day for sailors eager to get out on the water. But on the plus side, it has enabled us to look closely at the boats and allowed a lot of time for the sailors to speak to manufacturers and learn some of the finer details about the equipment.”

Sailors will be expected to attend the morning briefing at 09:30 ready to sail. The conditions tomorrow are looking favourable so we should see all of the boats on the water.

About ISAF

There are two principal meetings held by the International Sailing Federation every year: the ISAF Annual Conference held in November and the ISAF Mid-Year Meeting held in May. In addition, the ISAF Executive Committee meet four times a year; during the Conference and Mid-Year Meeting and on two other occassions. ISAF Annual Conference Every November, the ISAF Annual Conference brings together the leading figures from the sailing world to discuss, debate and decide upon the key issues in the sport of sailing. The ISAF Committees, Sub-committees and Commissions all have the opportunity to debate all the issues in their respective areas. Based on these discussions they will then make recommendations to the ISAF Council, which is the final decision making body of ISAF. The Conference concludes with three days of Council meetings, when the major decisions which affect sailing's future will be made. ISAF Mid-Year Meeting Held annually every May, the ISAF Mid-Year Meetings bring together the ISAF Council, ISAF Executive Committee and ISAF Events Committee. The key focus of the Council meeting is to consider financial issues and follow up on matters deferred from the Annual Conference.
