Executive Committee elected at Inaurugal General Meeting

Executive Committee elected at Inaurugal General Meeting

Over the past 2 years, a new discipline of sailing called "Wing Foil" has emerged.

Winging can be see as a crossover between windsurfing, kiteboarding, sailing and standup paddling, and the current participants in the sport are coming equally from these communities.

While the sport is still in his infancy, there is a strong demand from stakeholders around the world to organize and govern the sport properly from the very beginning to ensure safe and fair competition in compliance with the established rules of World Sailing.

A group of accomplished athletes and sport managers with a wide range of backgrounds have worked over the past 12 month to form an international association, who's members are national associations governing the sport in their country and represent the athletes.

Hi,

Great to see Gunnar B as rider representative.

I wish that they would just call it something with "Wingfoiling". "Wing Sports" is too wide and could be misunderstood to include many different sports, eg paragliding, hanggliding etc.

Too bad it’s kicking out kiteboarding out Olympics.
Yet as wakestyle died just in between events, the expectation is to happen to foil racing too.
