Kiteboarders Join Skiff And Multihull Sailors On Day Five

The wind is very light this morning in Santander and at the 9:30 briefing sailors were told that there would be no sailing for a while.

A briefing will be held at 11:00, but whilst we wait for wind Evaluation Panel members Sylvia Vogl (AUT) and Enrique Figueroa (PUR) got an opportunity to meet with the mixed multihull sailors to hear their thoughts on what they’d sailed so far as well as offering advice.

The pair may team up either today, or tomorrow, on some of the multihulls so will try and get some images of them sailing together.

Today also sees the start of the Kiteboarding format evaluation so we have a nice blend of sailing talent here in Santander, and with the kiteboarders arrival, a lovely mix of colours! Find out more here.

Throughout the week we’ve taken some footage of all the boats, check out some of the best bits from the six skiffs.

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.
