the Elliot 6m was what was used at the Womens Match Racing Worlds this year- apparently commonly used as the boat for Womens match events down under. It's a much "outside" choice than the Yngling was.

Good Match racers need to be adaptable- look at the recent article in Y&Y on the Men's tour to see why

Not a 6m, an Elliott 6 Meter (Modified).
Along with a change to match racing from fleet racing.
As to weight, not sure what will be in place in the way of crew weight limits etc. by the time London comes around.

Just seen an article in the Telegraph (saturday sprts section) that the Yngling has been dropped in favour of a 6m. Is this true?

 

The blondes say they are to light for the new boat.
