Go fly a kite.
Or maybe not.
First we heard that kiteboards will be in the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
Now ISAF has reversed that decision at their conference in Ireland this week.
Kiteboards are out. Windsurfers are back in. At least for 2016.
The final classes for sailing in the 2016 Olympics are...
Men's Board - RS:X
Women's Board - RS:X
Men's One Person Dinghy - Laser
Women's One Person Dinghy - Laser Radial
Men's 2nd One Person Dinghy - Finn
Men's Skiff - 49er
Women's Skiff – 49erFX
Men's Two Person Dinghy - 470
Women's Two Person Dinghy - 470
Mixed Two Person Multihull – Nacra 17 5
What do you think of these classes as representative of our sport?
Will these choices be good for the future of sailing?
Which one are you going to be sailing?
