Since the boat is a small part of the cost of an Olympic Campaign, as many have mentioned, why not open class, 90ft x 90ft, with wingsails and water ballast. Oh wait, wrong thread.. wink

No manufacturer would support your idea.

12 months does not give enough time for manufacturers to gear up and produce the number of boats that would be expected for training etc leading up to the games.... And after the Olympics they would have boats that they would need to just about "give away"..... Great way to make the manufacturers that support the classes go bankrupt!!

And prospective competitors are not going to purchase one of each ... just in case!

My 2 cents


The Jr Olympic Event at Rock Hall, MD, July this year includes Hobie 16's. We plan on flying back to take part, with Grandson Dan sailing with his cousin, if we can line up a H-16 for the Event.
