World Sailing Council has agreed to introduce a mixed two person keelboat offshore event for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

The discipline will replace the mixed one person dinghy event which had previously been agreed upon, though it still need to be ratified at World Sailing's Annual General Meeting.

A much better choice. Which boat will be used?

From sail-world.com on Keelboats.

"At Paris 2024 the boat used will be a displacement monohull (non-foiling) with a shorthanded deck layout. The boat will be between 6-10 metres in hull length, able to perform in 4 to 40 knots with a proper sail inventory for all conditions and be a sloop rig with a spinnaker".

Statement from The International Finn Association after the decision to cut the Finn for 2024 Olympics.

 

"Most of all we are very disappointed for the many committed Finn sailors affected by this decision, especially the young sailors who have had their campaign ambitions for 2024 cruelly shattered.

We feel the Finn class has become collateral damage in the quest for gender equality and Olympic TV rights income for World Sailing.

It is a great injustice that many of the best athletes in the sport of sailing no longer have an avenue to the Olympics, and we honestly feel the Olympics will be poorer as a result of the exclusion of the Finn.

We know the Finn class will continue to thrive and for the time being we will focus on supporting our athletes as they prepare for Tokyo 2020. In the coming months, the IFA will work towards finding a way back for the Finn on the Olympic programme".

Keep windsurfing, at least that's actually very different in between all those boats.

I think he's just saying to cut some of windsurfing and laser quota (actually, they have more than any other class, especially laser), not the entire classes...;)
