News from ISAF
the final event and equipment selections for the Rio 2016 Olympic Sailing
The ISAF Council voted that Kiteboarding will replace windsurfing for the men's
and women's board events and confirmed the equipment that will be used for the
Women's Skiff and Mixed Multihull Events.
The Mackay FX, referred to as
the 49er FX, was selected yesterday as the two person women's skiff and today
the Nacra 17 joins the Olympic equipment family after being selected for the two
person mixed multihull event.
The 49er FX received the majority of votes
from the ISAF Council in the first round after the six evaluation trial entries
were narrowed down to just three; the 29erXX, the RS900 and the 49er
There was an equally animated debate on the final morning of the
Council meeting at this year's ISAF Mid-Year Meeting to decide the equipment to
be selected for the mixed multihull event. After discussing the recommendations
from the Evaluation Panel, the Equipment Committee and the Events Committee,
Council voted between the Nacra 17 and the Viper with the Nacra 17 securing the
The final discussion on the events and equipment for the 2016
Olympic Sailing Competition was about the men's and women's board events with
Council voting in favour or kiteboarding.
In November 2011 an evaluation
group was appointed to examine kiteboarding formats with the board events for
Rio 2016 defined as 'windsurfing and/or kiteboarding'. The Evaluation Group
recommended that kiteboarding be included in the ISAF Event family including the
ISAF Sailing World Cup and the ISAF Sailing World Championships but Council went
one step further and selected Kiteboarding for the Rio 2016 Olympic Sailing
Competition as well.
The ISAF Windsurfing and Kiteboarding Committee will
consider and make further recommendations to Council on the implementation of
the inclusion of kiteboarding at their meeting in November 2012 at the ISAF
ISAF President Göran Petersson said, "These
announcements mark a new era for sailing and we welcome the new classes into the
ISAF family. The equipment selections have fulfilled the criteria set out by the
Evaluation Panel and we look forward to seeing the boats not only at the Rio
2016 Olympic Games, but the ISAF Sailing World Cup and ISAF Sailing World
"Kiteboarding has proven to us that it is ready to be
included into the list of prestigious ISAF Events and it is a fantastic addition
to the sailing programme for the 2016 Olympic Games."
The events to
be contested at the 2016 Olympic Games are confirmed as:
Men's One Person Dinghy -
Women's One Person Dinghy - Laser Radial
Men's One Person Dinghy
(heavy) - Finn
Men's Two Person Dinghy - 470

2012 New Year's Cup Results
HKKF 2012 New year's cup has been postponed twice due to unsatisfactory wind condition this season. Fortunately today 12 Feb 12 the one up above helps and makes it happened out of the pessimistic forecast...
Out of a total 30 registered riders, 18 dedicated riders showed up. The wind was zero knot at 10:00 during skippers' meeting. Out of everyone's expectation, the wind was suddenly picking up to 10-11 knots at 11:45 and the race director Hoitin decisively announced the first race at 12:30. But once the green flag up for the start the wind dropped to barely 8-9 knots and only one could finish the race. The race was abondoned.
Luckily the wind came back to 10-11 knots and the 2nd race was started successfully with a simple sausage upwind/downwind course. And here are the results:

HKKF would like to praise all the riders and helpers showing up today, even though knowing the wind forecast was supposedly bad! We'd also thank Ken, Matthew, Kevin & Betty as the helpers, Neil as our guest and supporter, Ting prepared the backdrop, the prizes from HoiTin, kite2high & kitesurf4ever... And last but not the least, HoiTin and Windy who basically did all the organizing works!
