I was reading your blog today and thought you might be interested (for your readers) to know the some of the recommendations made by Committees at ISAF Conference. They are only recommendations to Council, which can still decide otherwise. These come from the recommendation papers produced by each Committee following their meetings which are public documents.
Events Committee (I didn't see their paper but heard about this)
Voted to abolish redress in the medal race apart from giving help.
Race Officials Committee

All the tracking submissions were recommended for rejection or deferral
Voted to abolish redress in the medal race apart from giving outside help
