Olympics: How long before World Sailing proposes this as an Olympic event?

Monday, July 2, 2018

DAKHLA, WESTERN SAHARA (#1056) – You think this headline is a joke? Under the current WS leadership, it may only be a matter of time. One hears judged "expression" events a la gymnastics and diving are being quietly noodled by World Sailing President Kim Andersen (DEN) and WS CEO Andy Hunt (GBR).

 

And why not? Arguably synchronized windsurfing, or kiting, are more visually entertaining than yacht racing? What do you think?

 

If you are curious about the venue, more on the reliably windy Dakhla here.

 

Julien Mas (FRA) and Sam Esteve (FRA). Both are athletes on the PWA tour, which is a "World Sailing Special Event."
