 Olympic Worldcup 2019 - Olympic Classes Regatta - Miami FL, USA - full SUI-Team participates All Swiss Olympia campaigners - in seven of the 10 events - participate in the forthcoming Olympic Classes Worldcup Regatta in Miami FL. Good chances for top positions have the RS:X windsurfer Mateo Sanz-Lanz SUI (cited among the favorites in the official preview), and the 470 women team Linda Fahrni/Maja Siegenthaler SUI. The Lake Thoune ladies will have to fight for the Olympic berth later this year, an objective already reached by Sébastien Schneiter/Lucien Cujean SUI in the 49er and Maud Jayet SUI in the Laser Radial. Very positive last year was the progress made by the development sailors in the 470 men and the Finn. Kilian Wagen/Grégoire Siegwart SUI, 470, and Nils Theuninck SUI, Finn, have good chances to qualify their classes for the 2020 Games as well. This is also true for Eliot Merceron SUI in the Laser Standard. Miami will be the first benchmark in view of the 2019 season with the Qualifications regattas.

News from World Sailing - Olympic Classes Selection - Mixed Keelboat approved

 News from World Sailing - Olympic Classes Selection - Mixed Keelboat approved One hears, no surprise, that the minutes of the controversial Council meeting at World Sailing’s AGM in Florida last month were approved in an extraordinary conference call yesterday. Our normally reliable sources say the vote was 22 to accept, 11 to reject, and 2 abstentions — thereby confirming the disputed decision that effectively replaced the Finn Class with “mixed gender keelboat offshore” for the 2024 Olympics.
