Thanks for the info. on the Olympic sailing classes.

It's hard to imagine Starboard, Mistral, etc. all building an Olympic class board to the same specs. However, I guess if they all used the Cobra factory, it could be done, All they have to do is agree on the board design.

Sails would be another issue. I think they would have to use one company.

I agree that the Olympics don't need windsurfing, but for the windsurfers that want to chase the "Olympic dream", why not? If Formula became the Olympic class, I do think you would see a lot more formula windsurfing around the world. The Mistral One Design certainly had an impact world wide when it was the Olympic class board, it just became too old and outdated.
