World Sailing agrees new Olympic Events for 2024

 
At the World Sailing AGM on Sunday, World Sailing voted for 2024 Olympic events as proposed in the WS Council Event List - that is including a Mixed 2 Person Keelboat Offshore event, a Kite-Foiler Mixed Event and a Two-Person-Dinghy Mixed event.

After rejecting various late amendments, which mostly proposed the removal of the Offshore Keelboat and/or Kite and a return to the existing classes, the delegates voted to accept the slate of events as agreed by the WS Council on Friday.

Members at the AGM voted with 43 voting in favour of retaining the Mixed Two Person Keelboat Offshore event, 17 were against and four abstained.
