World Sailing's Council made key decisions on the Equipment to be used at the Paris 2024 Olympic Sailing Competition on Sunday 19 May as the Mid-Year Meeting concluded in London, Great Britain.
This weekend World Sailing Council voted to reject the World Sailing Board proposal to select the RS:X as the Olympic board in 2024. A vote of 23-19. Equipment evaluation trials will be held. Dates to be advised. The 2024 Olympic Windfoiling proposal is still on track.
Or as the official text of World Sailing says:
Men's and Women's Windsurfer
As the Men's and Women's Windsurfer Equipment is under a re-evaluation procedure, World Sailing's Board of Directors have authority on making recommendations to World Sailing's Council.
The Board of Directors recommendation was to select the RS:X as the Equipment. 19 Council members voted to accept the recommendation, 23 voted to reject and there were zero abstentions.
As a result, the recommendation was rejected.
The Board of Directors will now have to propose a new recommendation to the Council.

For Dorian an important decision as he wrote an open letter to the World Council members last week.
"I'm glad that this decision has been made. But this is only the first step. We're not there yet!" said Dorian in a first reaction.
