Just read the article and I'd say the Laser is buggered anyway as they have to have their FRAND agreements sorted by August 1st which seems extremely unlikely.....

1st of August is not time at all considering as they donít seam to be talking about the two person long distance boat. Fingers crossed - it is the best boat for global inclusion, which is the whole point

Great publicity for the Aero without ever having to go through the whole selling of soul thing.

I know we are a long way off but having thought about this:

ILCA doesn't have licensed builder in Europe.

As it stands the only place you can get a "Laser" from is from PS - this will be a Laser, but PS are no longer currently WS licenced.

So as things are nobody can legally supply the boats for Paris 2024. Which bunch of pillocks though that this would be a good idea? They may have killed the ILCA off before it even starts because the financial might of Mr Rastegar could now just litigate this into the long grass. If he can prevent the ILCA from appointing a builder or supplying boats in Europe then WS will have no choice but to use PS hulls or use another class.

This is going to be interesting g to watch. Maybe the FRAND restrictions will see the Laser deselected? I actually think its the best boat for the job if im honest, but the political baggage makes it untenable.

As predicted. 

I feel bad for all the suppliers who wasted significant sums participating in sham trials. 

Now the Aero needs to see if they can endure beyond winning trials and then being overlooked. Just like the Contender and Musto Skiff before them.

RS can be happy they have had the same number of votes on this forum to match number of boats sold so far this year
