The governing body of sailing worldwide, formerly known as ISAF, has officially announced its rebrand to 'World Sailing - A Sport for Life' - ISAF Becomes World Sailing As Part Of Rebrand : News & Features | ISAF | World Sailing | Official Site: "Sailing is one of the most inclusive sports in the world, regardless of gender, age or ability of a sailor, there is a boat for anyone and everyone to train and race in. It's not unusual to see men and women racing alongside and against each other, grandparents sharing a boat with their grandchildren, or able-bodied and disabled sailors going head-to-head - all can compete on equal terms and this is what makes the sport unique."
