Should the Senior and Masters Europeans be merged or is there enough capacity to hold both events?
Merge into one

Merged into one
Would you be interested in a World Ranking List (after 2020 the World Sailing one will probably stop)? It could be useful as a marketing tool to promote the sailors and events.
Yes, it would be interesting
No, not interested
Should IFA establish a European based travellers tour of major events to focus attendance and branding?
Yes, that would be attractive
No, we'll just do the events we have always done

Targeted National Championships
Existing major events (where these remain) - Kiel, Hyeres etc
Finn Gold Cup and Europeans
Please explain any other ideas about what would make this attractive
Realistically how many international events would you take part in during any year?
Should any new tour be restricted to Europe or should it also include selected non-European events?
Start with Europe only
Include events worldwide
Please write below any way that you think IFA can support sailors worldwide, put on attractive events, maintain the class as relevant and high level, or make any other comments.
