The International Sailing Federation (ISAF) has been notified of a legal challenge by the International RS:X Class Association Ltd to the decision taken at the ISAF Council meeting in May 2012 to select Kiteboarding for the Rio 2016 Olympic Sailing Competition.
ISAF intends to fully defend the decision of the ISAF Council, which was
made in accordance with the ISAF Regulations and the defined decision making
processes of ISAF.
ISAF expects the normal submission process to be used in order to ask
Council to reconsider its decisions and therefore ISAF is extremely
disappointed that this course of action has been taken, not least because
responding to legal claims will incur substantial and unnecessary legal
costs for ISAF and for the Class itself.
