Here’s a follow up from the iQ Youth&Junior EGM which took place November the 29th,

The vote to change the iQ foil mast from aluminum to carbon for the U19 class has gone through with nearly 100% of delegates voting in favor of the change.  

The Class and Starboard have verified the change with World Sailing and are planning out the transition timeline.

Starboard has set a special mast exchange offer for sailors who have already bought the iQFOiL Youth Aluminum Foil, which will be organised through distributors and dealers.

Regarding the timeline, the priority for the carbon upgrade will go to those sailors who attended this year’s iQFOiL Y&J Worlds or Europeans. There are 600 carbon masts available immediately.

The upgrades will be organised through distributors and dealers.
