Kieler Yacht Club to Host Meeting to Decide Future of Olympic Classes Sailing in Europe

EUROSAF today announced that the meeting at which the future of Olympic Classes Sailing in Europe, post the 2012 Olympic Regatta, is to be held on Saturday 9th July, at the Kieler Yacht Club in Germany.
The EUROLYMP Sailing Circuit was an annual part of the Olympic classes sailing scene from 1985 until 2004, when the introduction of five ISAF World Cup Sailing events in Europe reduced the need for these events. Following the decision of ISAF to limit the number of Sailing World Cup Regattas to one per continent (two in Europe between 2013 - 2016) EUROSAF, in co-operation with some event organisers, have decided to reinstate the EUROLYMP Sailing Circuit, in order to offer a wider selection of high quality sailing events, for elite and talented sailors from all over the world, in Olympic Classes.
The meeting, which commences at 11.00, is open to all interested event organisers who may wish to participate in the discussions leading up to the reinstatement of these regattas, which are set to commence following the Olympic Regatta in August 2012. New innovations, formats and ideas will all be considered as part of the reintroduction of the EUROLYMP Sailing Circuit to make it the premier sailing series in Europe.
Dan Ibsen, a Vice-President of EUROSAF and Secretary General of the Danish Sailing Federation, said "It is important that Europe maintain the same standards in the quality of these regattas and regatta management, as was previously achieved under the ISAF umbrella, even after the changes take place. EUROSAF, being the Continental Authority for sailing in Europe, is in a strong position to ensure the very highest of standards are achieved and maintained by the event organisers."

Those who would like to attend the meeting should go to
www.eurosaf.org/1704 where they will find further information and details of travel and accommodation within Germany.
