HooD Posted November 10, 2007 Report Share Posted November 10, 2007 ISAF Delares Itself To Be Monohulls Only - No Multihulls in 2012 internet - Friday, November 09, 2007 By mpg The ISAF Council meeting began with a discussion of the recommended Events Committee slate which included Multihull Open (Event). However, it did not include a Keelboat event for either Men or Women. Primarily because of this, the Events Committee slate of events narrowly missed receiving a majority: the vote was 16 In Favor, 19 Against, 1 Abstain The Council then started over again, and voted for 6 Events for Men/Open & 4 Events for Women. 6 & 4 passed easily: the vote was 29 In Favor, 7 Against, 0 Abstain The Council then voted on the Events that they wanted. Both Keelboats were voted in. The Multihull and one of the 2 person Womens dinghies were voted out. Notes on the Council Discussion: Chris Atkins (GBR) was very strongly in favor of the Events Committee slate (which included a Multihull(Open) Event Eric Tulla (PUR) was strongly in favor of the lasers, simple dinghies, and multihulls that are widely used by youth in his region. Charlie Cook (USA) was strongly in favor of the Keelboats and a proponent of dropping the multihull. John Cribbin (IRL) was strongly in favor of the Keelboats and strongly opposed to any 'Open' event. Theresa Lara (VEN) strong support for Chris Atkins’ position Spain, France, & Russia also supported multihulls. France and Russia voted against the Events Committee slate because they wanted keelboats to be added. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
