Cat Petition

Following the recent ISAF decision to drop the Multihull disipline from the 2012 Olympics the catamaran world is already up in arms. There is a petition set up online by the UK Catamaran Racing Association:

"Allow the multihull to compete in the Olympics"

Dropping the fastest class currently in the Games is unlikely to help make the sailing event in Weymouth a spectacle. It is a tricky call though, and I expected a series of petitions by whatever class got kicked out. Everyone has got too settled with the current classes, and it all really needs a bit of a shake up.

Interestingly nobody is complaining about the loss of the Yngling! Surprise surprise! Finally a good decision by ISAF.
