Τα multihulls δικαιώνονται...

Οι αναφορές από τα πεπραγμένα στην Αγ. Πετρούπολη έρχονται μια μια και οι αποφάσεις άλλους δυσαρεστούν και άλλους ευχαριστούν.
Τα Star & τα Elliott είναι από τους απογοητευμένους, αντίθετα τα multihull δικαιώνονται πανηγυρικά και φαίνεται να αναγνωρίζεται ότι ήταν λάθος να βγουν από τους Ολυμπιακούς. Το θέμα που παραμένει πλέον είναι να αποφασιστεί ποιο σκάφος θα πάρει τον τίτλο Ολυμπιακό catamaran (διαβάστε την χθεσινή μας αναφορά στις πιθανές προτάσεις).
Παρακάτω παραθέτουμε την αναφορά του Roland Gaebler, επίσης πάνω στο θέμα των ημερών...

The ISAF Events Committee just finished the voting procedure at the midyear conference in St. Petersburg and there was no discussion for the comeback of the Multihull. There is also a small chance with the Submissions from the Netherlands to get 2 Multihulls (Women + Men) in with the 5:5 slide.
The Keelboats (Starclass and Women Matchracing) are completely out. It seems the finacial crisis and less money in the MNAs make it impossible to finance Olympic Keelboat sailing.
Also Kiteboarding went out early in the voting procedure. So no colorful and action loaded flying surfers.
Tomorrow the ISAF council can change the vote again the Events Com. made. So there is still an open vote to fix it 100%. But with the view to the submissions again, it looks Keelboat Sailing hasn't got the strong voice as in years past.
Now the focus should be back on the format of racing and how we can make sailing a spectator and media sport. IOC gives pressure to reach higher media value and better ticket sales. Also ISAF need more money from IOC. We hope the ISAF not missed the chance to upgrade Olympic sailing with a high performance Multihull. We need to have a boat like the Tornado which flies hulls in any wind condition.
