So the star and finn stay. Well at least should be one medal in the bag with the depth of talent in GBR finn sailing, but really, what are they on!! Match racing can be good, but why just the girls, and why havent the girls not got a high performance boat as well, I hope someone from IOC will bring up the rather sexist division of events.

No strong feelings either way on the big T (something had to go), but a real shame to see Women's match racing getting in instead of Women's high performance (skiff).

Does "Two person dinghy - Women" mean they're stuck with the 470 or can the 29er (or whatever) become the "Two person dinghy"

yes, there was the option to put in a high performance one. there will be little point in changing from 470 to similar now, but watch this space!

Seems little point having an events comitee if their decision is not listened to at council.

Actual classes don't get decided until November 08, but I can't see many changes happening in the 9 existing events.
