ISAF Olympic Committee reconsidering windsurfing decision

The ISAF is currently meeting in Dublin, and the controversial windsurfing vs kiteboarding decision is very much on the agenda. The Windsurfing & Kiteboarding Committee proposed a new compromise of mixed windsurfing and mixed kiteboarding (male/female) events. In its attempt to keep everyone happy the committee has arrived at a result which will please no one and probably do both sports a disservice, not to mention reducing rather than increasing participation, particularly by smaller countries, the very group it's supposed to help. http://www.surfertoday.com/windsurfing/8139-isaf-committee-proposes-wind...
Meanwhile the Events committee has recommended that the original decision be overturned - a much more sensible approach, and an opportunity to get kiteboarding into the Olympics in a much better managed way. http://www.sail-world.com/NZ/ISAF-Conference:-Committee-votes-to-re-inst...
