received this from one of our most active anarchists, and it is a revealing
and very thorough report on the ISAF decision to eliminate the multihull
class from the 2012 Olympics, put together by United Kingdom Catamaran
Racing Association late last year.
Council Selection of Olympic Events 2012
controversy has been caused by the November 13 2007 decision at ISAF Council
in Estoril to exclude any Multihull Class from the 2012 Olympics.
This report provides supporting evidence to a petition signed by 5600
people including former ISAF Sailors of the Year and Olympic Medallists
requesting that the IOC include multihulls (www.ipetitions.com/petition/multihullinolympics/index.html).
It has been prepared to assist ISAF Councillors and members of the public
in understanding better how such a widely unpopular decision could have
been made and present facts that the authors hope will be taken into consideration
for a re-examination of that decision. Read the document .
