If any new Events are selected, the Equipment Committee will review the Equipment for the Events. Evaluation events will be held in 2019 ahead of a final decision by November 2019.
As part of a separate equipment re-evaluation process, World Sailing is reviewing the equipment used for the Men and Women's One Person Dinghy Events. Should the Men's and Women's Windsurfer Events and Equipment be retained, World Sailing will also re-evaluate the Equipment.
The purpose of a re-evaluation is to ensure there is fair and open competition at regular intervals for the equipment for an Olympic Event. This ensures that sailors, Member National Authorities and Olympic teams are receiving a high-quality service and products from manufacturers at competitive prices.
The Equipment Committee reviewed and approved the Olympic Equipment re-evaluation procedure which can be viewed here -
