IWA President, Ezio Ferin, commented: "Once again the circle is complete. We are pleased to accept the RSX class into the IWA, the windsurfing family of classes. Without the Olympic class under the umbrella of IWA we were incomplete . . . Welcome."

RS:X President, Mike Dempsey, commented: "The RSX Class is pleased to join the IWA and once again offer our 12 year old Techno Juniors clear sight of the pathway to senior competition, world travel, and for some, Olympic glory."

Our collective aim is to ensure that the logistics and costs faced by ISAF Member National Authorities wishing to develop youth and junior windsurf racing are reduced to a minimum.

This move will also maximize the MNA's opportunities to build up experienced development squads capable of making the transition to the Olympic Windsurfing Class.

Future championship venues will be jointly agreed between the Techno 293 Class and the RS:X with contracts signed between the IWA and the Local Organizer.
