The Evaluation Panel has this evening concluded two days of meetings, receiving presentations from the venues bidding for selection to host the 2007 ISAF Sailing World Championships.
Chairman of the Evaluation Panel and Events Committee Chairman Bjorn UNGER (SWE), was impressed with the quality of the bids received and commented, "I am confident that of the bidding venues, ISAF will identify a venue that will excel in hosting the 2007 ISAF Sailing World Championships. For ISAF and the sailors, it is imperative that the venue meets the needs of the sport - the sailors, media and spectators - and will provide an excellent sailing event."
