2016 Equipment Evaluations Wrap Up

Light winds meant that the final day at the 2016 Equipment Evaluations in Santander, Spain wrapped up earlier than expected.

The decision to cancel the day was made at the 09:30 sailor briefing, but after eight days of evaluating the seven multihull and six skiff boats the panel have enough information, sailor feedback and data to discuss what boats are appropriate for the 2016 Rio Olympic Sailing Competition.

The manufacturers now have the task of dismantling all of their equipment to take back home where they will assess and review how their week went.

Moving forward, the Evaluation Panel will finalise their reports and decisions will be made in the not so distant future.

Thanks for following the blog throughout the trials and we will keep you further updated with ISAF news items in the build up to the ISAF Mid-Year Meeting in Stresa, Italy from 3-6 May.

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.
