Yes, we tried everything we could think of to make this thing happen. Too many people have trained too hard for this championship for the class to give up on the event without a fight.
The trouble is the more we worked the more we found that things were getting more and more complicated. A vicious circle, if you like. One that we could not in all conscience find a reasonable way out of. So that’s it, the 2008 RS:X Youth Worlds are postponed.
We’ll come back to you with news about where and when this event will take place as soon as we all have got some sleep and reflected on the best thing to do.
Naturally, we would like to hold the Youth Worlds in Thailand if we can. Let’s hope that the political situation resolves itself very soon and Thailand as a country can get back to being one of the most welcoming and friendly places in the world.
Certainly the PAD have put their finger on perhaps the most important communications artery and that is a fact we can do nothing about.
