Saving Sailing in the Olympics

by Eric Faust, ILCA Executive Secretary

The International Laser Class Association (ILCA) is surprised and disappointed by the announcement that the World Sailing Board has recommended to select new equipment to replace the Laser and Laser Radial Classes for the one-person dinghy events in the 2024 Olympic Games.

The announcement comes as part of the equipment reevaluation process that has been ongoing since May of this year. According to the published reevaluation procedure, the board’s recommendation is now meant to be presented to the World Sailing Council for acceptance or rejection at the upcoming World Sailing Conference later this month in Sarasota, Florida.

Oceania Laser Masters Championships Update

Posted in Articles by admin.

Oceania Laser Master Championships 2018

Dear Sailors, two changes have been made to improve the Oceania Fiji Masters in October.

Firstly we have combined the Radial event with the Standard Rig one to be run between 13th and 19th October (with racing 15th to 19th October) i.e. same as for the original Standard Rig event. We will have enough charter boats to manage this and having the two rigs together will make a better and more exciting event.

Second we have introduced the new Corinthian Category to allow sailors aged 21 to 34 to participate. This category is proving popular with local sailors. Read below for details.

The Notice of Race posted HERE and the on line entry HERE now reflect these two changes.

Entries for the event will cut off on the 13th September, please make sure you have your charter booking in by July 31st with PSA.
