I am not going to go through everything in the 1998 ISAF Annual Conference Report - you should read it - but will focus on what might affect the 505 class and 505 class racing, or might be of particular interest to 505 sailors.
Event organizers have asked ISAF that the events not be the fee collectors from the "Category C" big boats and the syndicates have asked for a yearly license so they are not unduly taxed at each event.

 NATO Takes over ISAF Peacekeeping Mission in Afghanistan
The experience of ISAF in Afghanistan is a very particular, unique experience of cooperation and defending peace for a country and a people that has gone through two and a half decades of oppression and violation of rights.
The reputation of ISAF in Afghanistan is so great that when the members of the constitutional commission went around the country to talk about the constitution with the people outside of Kabul, they were first asked if they could also have ISAF in their provinces.
ISAF 3 has also provided probably the strongest statement to date in terms of its determination to secure the Kabul environment in the face of adversity.

 ISAF Report
The ISAF Windsurfing Committee voted 7 / 2 in favour of retaining the Mistral OD as the Olympic equipment; the Chairman led the vote by raising his hand in favour of the One Design immediately.
This committee would then report to the ISAF Executive in February, who would forward a recommendation to the ISAF Council in May (the last possible chance for a decision to be made).
It was clearly apparent that ISAF Committee Members at all levels vote according to ‘national instruction’ and will not alter their vote or decision based on information presented to them during ISAF committee meetings.

 America's Cup vs ISAF, round 2
Henderson argues that ISAF must sit over the America's Cup - with its complex relationships between the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron as Trustee, Team New Zealand as defender, AC 2000 as event organiser and the New York YC as the challenger's representative - as an honest senate.
"ISAF is holding firm to the position that ISAF must ensure as much as we can that Fair Play prevails and that the International Judges and International Umpires, and therefore the integrity of the competition be adjudicated by ISAF appointed officials.
ISAF has little or nothing to do with the class rule of the America's Cup boats or their measurement and various dispute procedures leave the jury, in theory, with very little to do.

During 2003, sailors may apply for an ISAF classification at any time, but in most cases there is no reason to do so right away as most classifications will be the same.

ISAF has made an investment in technology for the new system that permits fast and simple classification decisions in many cases.

 ISAF: Photo Gallery - Kabul Airport
A speedy return of functionality at the airport was vital not just to allow the delivery and support of ISAF's personnel and equipment, but also to open up the delivery of a huge tonnage of humanitarian aid from around the world, and the resumption of civil air traffic.

Although ISAF personnel continue to assist the Afghan authorities in operating the airport, the international community has not neglected the need to help train local staff to take over the key functions.

 Scuttlebutt News Center: The Q Factor - ISAF World Sailing Ranking System
ISAF was ignoring their own rules and giving the European Championships Grade 1, Q=1.5 status in addition to Hyeres, Spa and Kiel for a total of four events on the same continent.
Answer: ISAF is deferring the US SAILING submission claiming that it would be too expensive to make the changes in the computer code to study the ramifications.
While we are working on the rankings, demand that ISAF codify the rankings as a regulation so that submissions may be made in the future for orderly change.
