Image: Aussie Youth Stars Jason & Lisa by / Jesús Renedo Australian Sailing Team. -- Excellent initiative by the Australian Sailing Fed, asking for feedback to the actual sailors. If you analyze the background of the top Australian youths and current Olympic representative you will find out that is not mandatory to create new fleets out of thin air to get the kids to perform.

Common sense dictates that having a good local Viper, F16 fleet & Hobie 16, the local sailing authorities are looking for feedback on which boat might be the ideal for the local fleet to train their youths.
Below check Sailing Australia introduction for details, below link to the survey for Australian sailors, parents and local Classes:
----------"Australian Sailing, Yachting Australia’s Performance Program, is investigating the best option for the multihull selection class for World Sailing Youth World Championships and the Youth Olympic Games following the decision by World Sailing to use the Nacra 15 as the mixed multihull class for these events. Further background information can be found here.
In order to collate the feedback, Australian Sailing has created the following survey. We encourage all participants (including parents) in the performance pathway, be they dinghy or multihull sailors, to participate in this survey. We also welcome Class Associations via their official representatives as well as multihull manufacturers and distributors in Australia.
The survey will take no longer than five minutes to complete. It would be appreciated if you could complete this survey no later than 5pm on Monday 7 March 2016. Your feedback is much appreciated."
