Israeli windsurfing delegation gives up hope of participating in world championships in Oman

The Israel Sailing Association announced on Thursday that it will not send a delegation to next week’s windsurfing world championships in Oman, bringing to an end a saga that began with a local blunder and ended with accusations of anti-Semitism.

Due to the security concerns raised by the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency), which is responsible for the safety of Israeli national teams when competing abroad, the Israel Sailing Association (ISA) notified the organizers last week that it will not take part in the championships in the Muslim sultanate, resulting in the cancellation of the visas originally issued by Oman in July.
