Subject: [ODCC List] Events Committee Feedback - Please forward to your class ASAP

[font=arial,helvetica]Dear Sailors,

The Sailor Athlete Council at US SAILING (SAC) is looking for your feedback on the ISAF proposals to select equipment for the 2008 Olympic Games. Your classes are being considered as equipment for the 2008 Olympic Games. (470, 49er, Byte, Europe, Finn, Flash, Hobie 16, Laser, Laser Radial, Mistral, Snipe, Soling, Star, Tornado, Yngling, Zoom 8) The actual ISAF submissions are posted online at: http:// Olympic equipment submissions start with #46-04.

The Sailor Athlete Council represents all racing sailors, and we want to hear how the US Sailors feel about these choices. Please, send your comments to me before October 18 so that they can be presented to the Olympic Sailing and ISAF committees at the upcoming US SAILING Fall Meeting in Portland OR. Please include as many facts as possible about your class in making your arguments. Optimal weight ranges, numbers of participants, costs, etc. are very useful facts to have as the discussions take place.

You are also invited to attend the Sailor Athlete Council Meeting on Friday, October 22, 2004, if you will be in the Portland areas. Thank you for taking the time to respond.

Sincerely yours,
Louise Gleason, Sailor Athlete Council Member

If you don´t know what´s a "Flash" look at:

The "Flash" is the "Flollow-up-class" (larger Sail and longer boom) aft the sailor of the `Splash´ is 18 years old. From all I know, that it is probably intended for female olympic-dinghy-sailing.

But, what is a "Snipe"/"Zoom 8"?
