The latest information as of December 4th from ILCA is as follows: We are currently processing the 1100 applications places and charter boats for the 5 different World Championships that should have been finalised today (4 December). We are working with a new system that has not been previously used for 5 events and this number of applications. We have encountered some unexpected administration delays. As a result we have to delay the offer of places and charter boats to sailors for all the 2009 World Championships in Japan and Canada for one week until 11 December.
