A view from the chair...December 2020

On December 15 the Formula Windsurfing 2020 AGM took place online through the Zoom platform.

Very important issues for the Class Rules of the foil division have been voted on, so I invite everyone to take note of the news and the fact that some of them will be in force from January 2021, while others from January 2022.

I warmly thank all the delegates and observers admitted to the discussion for their contribution and exchange of views. A special thanks to Monty Spindler and Gonzalo Costa Hoevel, who offered us their point of view not only from experienced riders, but also on behalf of equipment manufacturers.

I think that the new Class Rules approved for the FW foil division will allow us to include other foil monotypes in our regattas without them suffering competitiveness gaps. I am referring to the juniors who will be able to race with a maximum sail of 8.00 square meters, thus making the Techno Wind Foil al pry of the iQFOiL Junior competitive as a FW foil board.

I am referring to the seniors who, with a maximum sail of 10 square meters, will not keep the iQFOiL away from our competitions.

Happy holidays to all. see you at the regattas,

Francesco
