The revised and updated Class Rules are now published. The main changes are in the wording and layout of some existing rules - to be in line with latest thinking and the ISAF 2009>2012 Equipment Rules of Sailing (ERS).
The fundamental rules about dimensions and limitations of equipment are unchanged.
Competitors are reminded about the new ISAF Windsurfing Competition Rules (WCR) regarding sail identification ( ie sail numbers - 3 letter country code and personal number ) which must be placed back to back on opaque white background . The 2009 AGNM agreed that this rule shall be applied from 2010.

7th of February 2010Europeans in Portugal postponed .......

Regrettably it has been necessary to postpone the Europeans scheduled for Portugal in the spring. Overpower have been working hard to secure the financial support needed for the event to go ahead, but it was decided that there was now insufficient time to publish a Notice of Race for an event at end of April.

The championship will now be scheduled for later in the year and will, of course, avoid clashing with any ranking events on the international calendar. If they have not already done so, member national associations are requested to advise the office on the dates of their national championships.
