Windsurfing And Kiteboarding Committee Declaration

A declaration at the recent Windsurfing and Kiteboarding Committee meeting was made.

This is what was agreed by all committee members including Mike Dempsey – the RS:X Class President.

The Windsurfing & Kiteboarding Committee is deeply disappointed and concerned about the decision of the International RS:X Class Association Limited to initiate legal action against ISAF. The  Windsurfing & Kiteboarding Committee notes the RS:X Class the option to ask for a review at this Conference. It is not within the spirit of membership od ISAF to take legal action against ISAF.

Furthermore this action is against the efforts of the Windsurfing & Kiteboarding Committee in the last four years to integrate both sailing events and to have both (Windsurf and Kiteboard) in the Olympic Games based on the following principles:

1.     Both Windsurfing and Kiteboarding should be in the Olympic Games.
2.     Windsurfing and Kiteboarding are totally different sailing events.
3.    Progress towards an equal number of Events for men and women.
