2006 IWA President - Ezio Ferin
At a recent meeting of IWA Board of Directors, Ezio Ferin, Chairman of the Techno 293 Class, was installed as the 2006 IWA President. As the IWA enters its sixth year a major objective set by the Board is the continued development of 'junior windsurfing'. Supplementing established racing programmes from Mistral Junior One Design and Formula classes, Techno 293 is seen as the 'Optimist' for windsurfing. Ezio commented: "a new class for a new era in the development of competitive windsurfing - I am relishing the challenge of developing this class into a truly worldwide base for our sport.
Techno 293 Website Goes Live
New IMCO website
The IMCO website has recently been re-vamped and, at the same time, the Committee decided to combine information for the two classes MOD and MJOD on the one IMCO website. This will save duplication of effort as much is common to both classes. Sections specific to MOD or MJOD have different banners and are clearly marked in the menu structure.
ISA Website relaunched
One of the main improvements will be a live webcast during the events with live results, pictures and video streams.
"Hybrid" - a division of Raceboard 2006 onwards
