Interpretation of the ISAF Constitution and Re-opening a Submission

There is a rumor that some people are attempting to reopen the discussion concerning Women's Match Racing vs. Women's Fleet Racing and the subsequent vote taken in Edinburgh 2000 in support of Women's Fleet Racing.
You should be aware the discussion of Women's Match vs. Women's Fleet Racing was reopened under the Events Committee Submission 54. Therefore, the discussion and subsequent vote on the merits of Women's Match Racing vs. Women's Fleet Racing was in compliance with ISAF Regulation 1.9.

Further, Council complied with the mandated requirements of ISAF Regulation 6.1.1 pertaining to the selection of the 2004 Olympic Regatta equipment (classes).
Policy considerations, such as those set by Council to facilitate a scheduling process for the Olympic Regatta, are subject to change by Council based upon the needs of ISAF. Council's authority is plenary and Council has the authority to amend policy as required.
The ISAF Constitution Committee is "the sole body responsible for interpreting the Constitution and Regulations of ISAF".
