Good Morning From Sunny Santander

The sun is shining this morning in Santander but it doesn’t look like we have much breeze. At the moment the Tornado team are in with the panel presenting their case.

Last night sailors, panel members, observers and manufacturers all met at the Real Club Maritimo de Santander. Club President Pedro Labat had words of thanks for sailors and ISAF and invited all sailors to the club ahead of the 2014 ISAF Sailing World Championships.

ISAF Secretary General, Jerome Pels, presented Labat with an ISAF flag that will proudly be displayed in the impressive club. Whilst ISAF were given an RCMS plaque that will look good in the office when we return!

There is the usual sailor briefing at 09:30 where sailors will find out the plan for the day.

The kiteboarders will also look to get going today as they test their format for possible inclusion in the 2016 Olympic Games.


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.
