The meeting of the International Sailing Federation's Events Committee has just voted on its schedule of ten Events for the 2016 Olympic Sailing Regatta.
The report from the Committee will now go to the ISAF Council to be 'received' which then triggers a discussion and debate as to whether the Council endorse the Recommendation or amend it.
The list of 10 events is believed to be:
Mens and Womens Windsurfer (RS:X) and Kiteboard
Mens Singlehander (Laser)
Womens Singlehander (Laser Radial)
Mens HP Skiff (49er)
Womens HP Skiff (Evaluation Trial)
Mixed Multihull (Evaluation Trial) (One female, one male crew)
Mens Heavyweight Singlehander (Finn)
Mens Doublehander (Spinnaker) 470
Womens Doublehander (Spinnaker) 470
The outcome of the vote is that there will be no Keelboat event in the 2016 Olympics, if the recommendation is endorsed by the ISAF Council meeting tomorrow, Friday and Saturday.
The Star is out.
The women's keelboat match racing is out.
The cat is back.
