Then maybe you should open the ILCA handbook and refresh your memory. Page 5 of my 2007 handbook is headed up "ILCA Policy and Useful Information". In the middle of the page there is a section on "WOMEN - policy". It recommends that women competitors place a red diamond on their sail when sailing in mixed fleets. On the next page under MASTERS policy it specifically says that women may sail in the Standard rig fleets at Masters Worlds but will only be eligible for age category prizes. Now maybe Mr Martin produces this handbook. But I have to assume that because these policies are in the handbook they have the tacit approval at least of the World Council. You might disagree with these policies but I think you have to accept that they have a stronger status than just "something Jeff likes to do".
