The Formula 1 of Sailing is back on the wave

The ISAF council followed the recommendation of the ISAF Events committee with 19 votes in favor and 16 against. Multihull is back on the wave to the Olympics. This is a provisorial result and still there is theoretically chance to change this result in May 2011 at the ISAF Meeting in St. Petersburg (RUS).   But this chance is relativ small, because there was a clear sign they will not touch the Multihull any more. They really want us back, because we will bring the ultimative action for the media and spectators in the Olympic Sailing Arena.   Mixed Multihull is the new Olympic discipline. The class will be decided with an Evaluation Event and a final decision in November 2012. But we made the most important step now. We got only positive comments from the national sailing federations and their representatives in Athens.   84% in favor for the Comeback for the Multihull says it all. We made a very fair campaign and never said something against other classes. We followed our ethics and this way we got great sympathy from all.   We were quite surprised they want have us back as an mixed discipline. But the multihull scene has the most mixed teams in their sport. Because women and men like to sail and fly together above the waves.   We never were thinking it can come so fast to us. We won the Tornado Worlds just some months ago and now our sport is olympic. We are so happy. Already we got so much positive response from womens who want sail multihull with a men.   A new Era comes to the Olympics. Mixed Sailing on the Formula 1 is a real highlight and it will attract the youth, the spectators, the media and the sponsors.   Nahid Gaebler was a great promoter of womens for Multihull. She deserve the honor.
