US Sailing Statement On Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Sailing IPC Decision | US Sailing: "The following is a statement from US Sailing, the national governing body for sailing, on the recent decision by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) to not include sailing at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. “Yesterday’s news about Paralympic sailing being dropped from the slate of sports at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games is highly disappointing. Our sport attracts a diverse group of disabled athletes across the world, as demonstrated by the three fleets of sailors from 14 countries competing in Miami last week at ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami. US Sailing will join ISAF, IFDS and the national governing bodies of our fellow Paralympic sailing nations to lead an appeal of this decision in the fight for reinstatement of Paralympic sailing at the Tokyo 2020 Games.” – Tom Hubbell, President of US Sailing"
