Equipment Committee take a rain check

The World Sailing Equipment Committee meeting seems to have taken a rain check with regard to the Paris 2024 Events and Equipment.

The Equipment Committee press release just mentions that they discussed criteria that could be used where new Equipment is required, but does reveal what that criteria is!

As they point out, the World Sailing Council will vote on the events and the recommendations passed to them (Submission M36-18 removing the Finn, 470 and RS:X) by the Events Committee, when they meet on Monday 14 and Tuesday 15 May.

If any new Events are selected by the World Sailing Council, the Equipment Committee will then review the Equipment for the Events. So Monday and Tuesday will be when the important decisions are made.

Any required evaluation events will be held in 2019 ahead of a final decision by November 2019.
