Windsurf E-News: 41 - February 2004
A New Year - and some changes
Greg Johns (AUS) is elected President for 2005 and joins the Board of Directors.
National Class Associations should all have received invoices for 2005 subscriptions - the fee structure has been simplified and is fairer to all.
Soon to be published: Associate Membership Scheme, 2005 Yearbook, and Windsurfing Edition of RRS 2005/2008
All websites are being improved.
ISAF World Sailing Rankings - Mistral Men & Women - 2 February 2005
The first ranking release of 2005, the Mistral will continue to feature in the ISAF World Sailing Rankings until the new Olympic equipment the Neil Pryde RS:X replaces it in the coming months. Go to IMCO website for news of the Mistral Men and Mistral Women.
NeilPryde RS:X Launch Update
There has been a great deal of excitement and speculation following the recent announcement that NeilPryde Ltd have successfully bid to supply the next generation of Olympic Windsurfing boards and rigs. There are however, a number of important issues that we would like to clarify in response to the questions and enquiries we have received regarding the RS:X programme
Production Board Registrations
New instructions have been published by ISAF for Production Board Registrations. At the forefront of this revision have been representatives of IFCA and the International Raceboard Class. The changes reflect the latest developments in board production and will encourage the development of competitive windsurfing in all disciplines - RACE, SLALOM, FREEWAVE and SPEED.
Key features: for IFCA, the revisions encourage multi brand participation, with sensible fees for board ranges (up to 5 models per range per fee);
for RACEBOARD, the opportunity for manufacturers of the new breed of 'Hybrid' boards to participate in developing racing.
Visit the websites for more details - Raceboard & IFCA.
