    1. Dear Khalid

      The decision to not to include Optimist is based on OCA directives! None the less the ASAF is ceased of the disappointment and the General Body has unanimously agreed that the ASAF Executive will once again request the OCA to reconsider their decision !! In the meanwhile the General Body has also approved of orgaising of a ASAF Asian Optimist Championship each year commencing 2019. This will add to the number of events the Optimist children can look forward to compete at in the future.

  1. How do you plan having a mixed event with the RS:One ? You are already having individual gender events with the RS:One

    1. Each MNA will be able to enter two competitiors of different genderĀ for the event. The cummulative score of the two shall count for the medal.
