Talking of Olympic Offshore Keelboat Racing

Talking of Olympic Offshore Keelboat racing . . . is the Paris 2014 equipment/event going to be anything like this?

Equipment trials will be required for the Mixed Two Person Keelboat Offshore, with the decision on the Equipment to be made at the 2019 Annual Conference.

There is also the matter of the race format to be decided, assuming that the IOC thinks this is a suitable event for the Olympic Games, not that they turn down very much if it hints of improved media coverage.
