Inget OS i doublehanded mixed?

World Sailing verkar ha fått bakläxa på sitt förslag att få till mixad offshoresegling på OS-programmet. Man har nu 6 veckor på sig att hitta på andra alternativ…

Känns ju som att detta hade kunnat undvikas med lite mer proaktivt arbete, men samtidigt är väl ingen förvånad?

the preliminary analysis of the details provided around Offshore have indicated the following challenges which have been the focus of the review mandated by the Olympic Programme Commission:

– Field of Play security, scope and complexity
– Broadcast cost and complexity
– World Sailing not having the opportunity to deliver an Offshore World Championships

Therefore, while we aim to complete the comprehensive assessment of Mixed Offshore to address the abovementioned points, we request that World Sailing proposes alternative event(s) for the 10th event of the Sailing programme.

This proposal is critical to ensure that, irrespective of the outcome of the Offshore assessment, the IOC Executive Board will be able to finalise the event programme for Sailing at its meeting on 8 June 2021, along with the pending decisions on events and competition formats across the other sports for the Olympic Games Paris 2024.
