I-Foil to Replace RS:X for 2024 Olympic Games
Posted On:  04/11/2019 08:03:36

World Sailing have given a clear decision that the Olympic equipment for 2024 should be foiling and not the RS:X. Through its deliberations over the past week at its 2019 Annual Conference, a number of committees and the World Sailing Council debated the merits of the trials which were undertaken in Lake Garda 2019.

Whilst the RS:X Class Association and its members are obviously disappointed in the decision, it understood that its position in representing the best of Olympic sailing for the past three Olympiads was under pressure from the latest fad to explode within the sport - wind foiling.

The RS:X Class now have to maximise its support to World Sailing whilst helping its large number of member countries and, more importantly, its feeder countries within the Techno class, how best to transition through to the new Olympic class.

The RS:X Class Association is sure that Olympic windsurfing will have its challenges ahead as it as it moves to new and developing equipment, but that it will continue to support windsurfing in all forms as it has done since 2003 at its conception.

Finally, the RS:X Class would like to thank all countries, sailors, events hosts. sponsors, volunteers and staff for their unwavering support in the class and the support of windsurfing for all.
