Revise Age Groups:

The proposal assumes a re-alignment of age divisions for men and women – it makes no

sense to have different age divisions for male and female. The revised structure has already been adopted by Raceboard Class and is a proposal also to be voted at the forthcoming Formula Windsurfing AGM.

Master is a man or woman who has reached the age 40.

Grand Master is a man or woman who has reached the age of 50.

Veteran is a man or woman who has reached the age of 60.
