This is happening now, and of course many of us are anticipating a massive **** fight sorry, I mean deep and respectful dicussion between the proponents of board sailing and kite sailing.

Only source for news I've seen so far is the ISAF official blog at http://www.sailing.org/follow/2012-ISAF-conference-blog.php.

News thus far is that the windsurfing and kitesurfing committee approved submission 51-12 which is a strange one which suggests replacing mean and womens kitsurfing with a "team" competition in both kite surfing and wind surfing in which a team consists of one man and one woman, I think in separate races. I say bizarre because in order to get within competitor limits the events would have to be limited to 16 nations per event, which would basically make it just a rich western nations event, without all the different countries you currently see in the board events. I don't see Council voting for that in the final decision, but I expect I'm wrong.

Thanks for posting Jim, do you know what the competitor limits are out of interest?  

I'm also sceptical that the mixed events will get voted through, and do the IOC have power to veto anyway?

ISTR sailing is limited to 400 competitors. That or 500 I think.

Latest news is that the Events committee is recommending going back to the RSX boards. They were very strongly in favour of the RSX against kitesurfing last time too though, so don't read too much into that.

Be aware that there's a regulation that requires a 75% majority in the Council vote to change any Olympic events this late in the game, but I *think* I see signs of some procedural stuff whereby there's a proposal for a regulation to change the regulation that requires a 75% vote, so *maybe* that regulation will be evaded...

Much political shenanigans going on in Dublin. Wonder who's going to vote the graveyard?

Latest from http://www.sailing.org/follow/2012-ISAF-conference-blog.php
ISAF Host - Daniel Smith:
The proposals to re-open the debate did not receive the required 75% of votes from ISAF Council. The Events and Equipment confirmed in May 2012 stand.
