Interesting times for the International Sunfish Class.

Fortunately this affects very few of use this side of the pond, so we can sit back and munch popcorn, but it seems that MacLaren/Laser performance are having a row with the International Sunfish Class Association, and they have set up a new Class Association and are trying to render the current one impotent.

The Laser Performance Press release is here:

The Sunfish CA President's response is here.

What will really be interesting is the ISAF response.
ISAF could refuse to recognise this new CA, they could stop recognising the old CA, all sorts of possibilities. Maclaren give ISAF serious sponsorship, which will no doubt cause them to think...

Deja vu.  I suspect Rastegar's money will win out again.  Sure, anyone can set up a fan club (which is all a traditional CA is), but World Sailing will only recognise one and sanction them to organise World championships.

The links work if you chop off the HTTPS.
