20/05/2019 13:45:53 World Sailing - Equipment Committee recommendation to Council
Here is an informative audio for those interested in understanding further the detail and process of the Valencia sea trials and the resultant Evaluation Report which scored the RS Aero as the preferred choice for the Olympic Single-Hander with an 80% score showing a clear margin. The audio is the Evaluation Panel presenting their detailed 30 page Report to the Equipment Committee with further explanations and answering their questions.
The Equipment Committee then voted in favour of the RS Aero over the other three boats by a dominant 9:3:0:0 votes, making their recommendation to the WS Council to approve the RS Aero. Council members then voted against their expert's recommendation the following day...
Full credit to the Panel, whilst World Sailing have their critics the actual trials were conducted with the highest integrity and were impressively professional, structured, detailed and transparent.
The Single Handed dinghy part is from 2:18 to 3:42 - for when you have a spare 84 minutes!
