On Tuesday 6 November, the ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year Awards will be presented at a gala dinner celebrating the achievements of the nominees.
In its centenary year, ISAF will be launching a Sailing Hall of Fame at the Annual Conference.
Around the meeting rooms the principle debate is likely to focus around the selection of the ten events for the 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition.
Every year the ISAF Annual Conference brings together the leading figures from the sailing world to discuss, debate and decide upon the key issues in the sport of sailing.
The ISAF Committees, Sub-committees and Commissions all have the opportunity to debate all the issues in their respective areas. Based on these discussions they will then make recommendations to the ISAF Council, which is the final decision making body of ISAF. The Conference concludes with three days of Council meetings, when the major decisions which affect sailing's future will be made.
The ISAF Meetings microsite - www.sailing.org/meetings - contains the Agendas, Supporting Papers and Submission from past meetings, 1997 to date. Via the online Minutes Archive you can access all past minutes of ISAF Committee Meetings from 1993 to date.
