College Sailing has long been dominated by the East Coast coaches cabal. ICSA would rather bankrupt a team/school hosting a major event by requiring all new boats.. Now they have stepped up a level even higher.
Why rotate boats every race if you insist on new boats.. The whole point is that you teach sailors to sail any boat, on any lake, in any condition faster and smarter than the competition.
The homogenization of college sailing accelerated in the late 1980's when proposals to host Nationals in One-Design 14's and 470's and Techs were all voted down.
Good luck finding hosts that want to put up with the Coaches and ICSA's demands.
