World Sailing's Mid Year Meeting was one of the most significant of recent times. After three days of intense politics and lobbying in London, five events were announced, with a very mixed reception from the sailing world:

  • Women's Windsurfer
  • New Event, Mixed One-Person Dinghy
  • New Event, Mixed Two Person Dinghy
  • New Event, Mixed Kiteboard
