The ISAF Council has just voted to select the RS:X for both men’s and women’s events at the 2012 Olympic Regatta
The chairman of the ISAF Event’s Committee, Bjorn Unger, proposed to the council that they take 8 sets of equipment (all those apart from the women’s double handed dinghy and women’s match racing) voted through in one block. All those pieces of equipment in the block have been supported overwhelmingly by members of the Events Committee, Equipment Committee and Women’s Committee. The vote in favour of this block of equipment was 31 for and 4 against.
If you add up the total number of votes that the FOD bid attracted either directly or by implication, the total amounts to 7. The Total number of votes cast in the process was 76 !
