We just heard that the Olympic events committee has voted the Star class out of the Olympics. Apparently it is not quite a done deal, but our sources say the committee is "recommending" that the Star be eliminated.
Really? Perhaps the most historic, competitive and important Olympic one design class ever, and the geniuses in charge want to eliminate it? Sure it’s old, and maybe adding a new class makes sense, but eliminating the Star just doesn’t seem right. We’re sure there are some really compelling reasons for such a mind-blowing terrible decision, and we can’t wait to have at them. Comments?
