[singlepic id=4660 w=300 h=204 float=left]ISAF – Busan – Si è concluso a Busan, in Corea del Sud, il Council annuale dell’ISAF. Nel corso del meeting della Federvela Internazionale sono state prese decisioni importanti relative alla gestione del nostro sport, specie in chiave olimpica. Tra le ultime proposte finite sul tavolo dei delegati ci sono state quelle relative all’introduzione di un gate di metà percorso e l’utilizzo del sistama di tracking per il controllo degli OCS. Una Submission, questa, che ha riscosso grandissimo interesse e attende di essere approvata dopo che sarà stato presentato un progetto tecnologico definitivo.
ISAF World Cup
Nel corso del Council sono state approvate altre norme ed è stata presentata l’ISAF World Cup, evento articolato su sette tappe che avrà inizio nel 2010 e che ha richiesto lunghi dibattiti per la definizione di calendario e obiettivi. Il calendario appare egemonizzato da eventi di storica importanza, che verranno riuniti a mo di circuito: si regaterà infatti, oltre che in Australia, a Miami, Palma, Hyéres, Medemblik, Kiel e Weymouth).
Muovendo dalla proposta del delegato statunitense Gary Boid, che si era adoperato per aumentare il numero di partecipanti alle classi Laser e RS:X Maschile già a partire dai Giochi di Londra 2012, il Council ha rivisto i numeri massimi dei posti disponibili per nazione ad ogni singolo evento e la percentuale della partecipazione femminile, passata dal 34.8% al 37.6%. Ai prossimi Giochi si dovrebbe rispettare questa composizione: Star (16 equipaggi), 49er (20 equipaggi), 470 Maschile (27 equipaggi), 470 Femminile (20 equipaggi), Finn (25 equipaggi), Laser (48 equipaggi), Laser Radial (39 equipaggi), RS:X Maschile (38 equipaggi), RS:X Femminile (28 equipaggi), Match Race Femminile (12 equipaggi). Il 75% dei posti disponibili verrà assegnato dal Mondiale di Perth 2011, mentre il 25% verrà distribuito sulla base dei risultati del 2012.
Match Race Femminile
Saranno dodici gli equipaggi selezionati, che si affronteranno in un Round Robin singolo, al fine di limitare il numero di match in programma. Al termine i primi 8 avanzeranno ai Quarti di Finale, quindi Semifinali e Finali. Un formato che ricorda molto da vicino quello tipico del World Match Racing Tour.
Per avere classifiche certe e poter procedere speditamente verso le premiazioni, il Council, sposando le raccomandazioni dell’Event, ha votato contro la possibilità di avanzare richiesta di riparazione in occasione della Medal Race.
ISAF, ANNUAL COUNCIL CONCLUDED IN BUSAN
[ISAF Press Release] The Council of the International Sailing Federation (ISAF) concluded their meeting in Busan, Korea today, with the final decisions made at this year’s ISAF Annual Conference.
The final day of the ISAF Council meeting at this year’s ISAF Annual Conference began with the Council, ISAF’s final decision-making body, considering Submissions where the Events Committee was the Reporting Committee.
Events Committee chairman Chris Atkins (GBR) presented the Submissions to Council. First up was Submission 081-09 to introduce middle gates in the race courses used at the Olympic Games, which was deferred in line with the Events Committee recommendation in order to encourage experimentation on the issue of course formats.
Tracking and the number of Submissions relating to tracking prompted a lot of discussion around the Council table. “There are two dimensions to the tracking issue,” explained Atkins, “One as part of a means of improving sports presentation of our sport. The second of which is to improve race management, particularly in relation to OCS decisions”.
There was clearly a lot of enthusiasm around the Council table for tracking systems and their introduction at ISAF Sailing World Cup events as soon as possible. The ISAF Technology Working Party has been analysing existing systems and the requirements of tracking specifications for both sports presentation and race management. Technology Working Party chairman Patrick Bergmans (BEL) explained that the working party intended to return to Council next November with a Submission on implementing measures to develop tracking systems at the ISAF Sailing World Cup and other ISAF events. Referring to this ongoing work, Atkins explained the Events Committee position, “Our recommendation is to defer this, as we already have existing working parties working on these areas and we’d like them to bring forward their recommendations.”
Council supported this position and the tracking Submissions were deferred.
There was a lengthy discussion over Submission 084-09 to make an early selection of the Laser and Laser Radial classes for the 2016 Olympic Sailing Competition. Several Committee members supported the early choice to give ISAF’s Member Nations a chance to plan ahead. However, the Events Committee recommended the Submission was rejected as they did not want to make any judgements ahead of the Olympic Commission report due in May 2010. Ben Barger (USA) said the ISAF Athletes’ Commission also supported rejection of the Submission as they felt it would be better to select all Olympic equipment together to promote unity amongst the classes.
Submission 085-09 relating to approval of Race Officers at ISAF Sailing World Cup events was approved, with Council members keen to send a strong message that ISAF was working towards greater consistency between the seven ISAF Sailing World Cup events.
Moving away from the event-related Submissions, Submissions 108-09, 109-09 and 110-09 on World Championships for Rating Systems were all deferred. Vice-President David Irish explained there was currently no common position between ISAF, ORC, IRC and Rating System Classes on this issue. Oceanic and Offshore Committee chairman Jacques Lehn (FRA) proposed to work with the relevant parties to find a way forward for next year’s Conference in November 2010.
The Council approved all the Race Officials-related Submissions presented by Race Officials Committee chairman Charley Cook (USA) and also followed the Racing Rules Committee’s recommendations on the Submissions relating to The Racing Rules of Sailing. This moved the Agenda onto the final item for Council decisions, based on any other recommendations made by the ISAF Committees.
Before the Council considered these recommendations, Vice-President Teo Ping Low (SIN) alerted the Council members of next year’s Youth Olympic Games (YOG) taking place in Singapore. The qualification events for the YOG start this month – you can find more details of the YOG, the chosen events and equipments, Singapore’s preparations, the qualification system and events and more at ISAF’s Youth Olympic Games site at www.sailing.org/yog.
Starting with the Equipment Committee recommendations, the Council approved the applications of the RS Tera for International Class status and the Laser Vago, RS500, RC44 and Kona for Recognised Class status, subject to them signing the ISAF Class agreement. The Council also support the Committee’s recommendation to remove the ISAF Class status of the Nacra F18 and ORMA 60 classes, as they no longer meet ISAF Class requirements.
Moving on to recommendations from the Events Committee, Council approved the principals on entry quotas and nation qualification for the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships. All ISAF Member Nations will be guaranteed one place in every event, with additional priority places for nations to be based on the results from 2010 Olympic Class World Championships (2010 European Championships for the 49er and Star classes) and also the ISAF World Rankings. Full details on the Perth 2011 qualification system will be published on the ISAF website www.sailing.org in December.
Also approved by Council was the choice of Limassol, Cyprus as host venue for the 2013 ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship and Schull, Ireland as host venue for the 2011 ISAF Team Racing World Championship. (Both of these choices are subject to contractual agreements and a successful site visit.)
ISAF President Göran Petersson (SWE) concluded the Council meeting by paying tribute to the host city Busan and the host Member National Authority, the Korea Sailing Federation (KSAF). The President presented Pil-seong Lee, Executive Director of KSAF, with a crystal decanter as a tribute and reminder of the 2009 ISAF Annual Conference.
