2024 EXTRAORDINARY GENERAL Meeting

Online – 15th April 2024 – 14.00 (Paris Time)

​Date: 15th April 2024
Place: Zoom
Starting time: 14.00 (Paris Time)

The iQFOiL Class and the iQFOiL Youth & Junior Class have been tasked with assessing a significant proposal regarding equipment adjustments for the upcoming Olympiad. Specifically, this proposal entails changing from a 9m2 sail to an 8m2 sail (allowing the 5.30 mast) for Senior Men, and from an 8m2 sail to a 7.2 or 7.3m2 sail for Senior Women and Youth Girls (allowing the 4.90 mast and both senior and youth boom).

Recognizing the importance of this matter, the iQFOiL Class Executive Committee has decided to convene an Extraordinary General Meeting in accordance with Article 6.4 of the Constitution to ensure all members have the opportunity to voice their perspectives and present arguments for or against the proposed changes.

This meeting aims to deliberate on pertinent issues, including concerns regarding potential health implications associated with weight gain to meet the typical iQFOiL size, challenges faced by Youth sailors in transitioning to the senior circuit, and the evident decline in participation of young girls in the sport.
