Ps. After this article was published on IFA's website, Finn has participated in another Olympic regatta - 2016 in Rio de Janerio and then for the 17th time in a row.
How it will be for Finn in the future is highly uncertain!
What we know today is that Finn is not included in the Olympic program 2024, but IFA is working very hard to get Finn back in the Olympic context.
Among others, Gerardo Seeliger (President of Honor IFA President 1981-1997) is a driving force in this work.
