The IOC removes the Tornado Class from Olympic Competition, so whats next? Does the Laser's 30yr old design stand the test to remain in favor, or will something replace it too? To say the Multihull Class is incensed about this decision is an understatement. As for me, a long time multihull racer, I am also pissed, but as my Laser roots grow, an my love for the boat increases, I realize that that the ISAF doesnt care, they are a money making orginization, dont let the "not for profit" thing throw you, and if you are sending them money(via Laser, or US Sailing), you better ask you get in return. You better start asking what the ILCA is doing with your money, and what they are doing to protect the Laser from the ISAF and IOC, because we(Laser) seriously could be next.
