LATE CHANGE IN PAN AM GAMES CLASSES
At a time when containers are being loaded with boats for the Pan Am Games, it was announced over the weekend that, "…only the Olympic Classes i.e., Mistral Boards Masculine, Mistral Boards Feminine and Laser Masculine, will be able to compete in the Sailing Event of the Pan American Games." This has lead to some very strong language by some very angry people

FW MEASUREMENT NOTICE AND SAIL NUMBERS
It is the Class' intention to "survey" and analyse the data records of most (if not all) boards registered for the forthcoming European Championships. It is necessary to have sail numbers (including 3 LETTER country codes ) on all sails. Sail numbers MUST be on both sides, clearly legible, and of the correct size (min 23 cm high). If in doubt please contact the class for clarification. http://www.formulawindsurfing.org/read.php?type=article&id=31
NO EXCUSE FOR SAILORS NOT HAVING SAIL NUMBERS!
If you have not read this yet, you should have done. The measurement team will be tough on you at the FW Europeans if you haven’t got a 3 letter country code and numbers on both sides of your sail. You have been warned… again!
