    A triumph for fashion over logic.
    But that's often the case eh.

    Sad and yes, it's the impact to all the Rya youth work that I fear.
    How much will they want to continue their association with the sport I wonder.

    I doubt the RYA will stop representing windsurfers, but I do think that T-15 can kiss goodbye to that their budgets at some point- no medals = no sponsorship opportunities to pay for it.

    So... they're going to be racing kiteboards are they? How the hell does that work? It's not even a sport at the moment!
