Well, it’s probably all too late to make changes for China but just consider this. The following rules involve point manipulation: 30.2, 30.3, 36, 44.3, 64.1, 64.3, 67, 69.1, 78.2, 86.1, 88.3 and Appendix A. In addition, NoRs, SIs and protest panels vary scoring as well so “sailing definitely has a challenge in communicating its scoring system to the non-sailing world” (quote Goran Petersson, President ISAF)

Naturally, changing to a more understandable scoring system will not instantly bring more non-sailors to our sport. The way major regattas are presented must also change so that they become attractive to visitors and spectators. All of which must be accompanied by a major media and marketing strategy involving a very large ISAF team on site. It is not rocket science!
The question is… Will ISAF, its proposed World Cup partners and the Olympic venue organisers rise to the challenge?
