Malaysia might be banned from World Sailing after prohibiting two Israeli windsurfers from competing at the Youth Sailing World Championships held in Langkawi.

The world governing body for the sport of sailing, with the full co-operation of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), investigated the incidents in which two top-ranked RS:X windsurfers from Israel - Yoav Omer and Noy Drihan - were not allowed to enter Malaysia in late December 2015.

Before reaching a final decision, World Sailing write to both the Malaysian Sailing Association and the Israel Yachting Association and address the conclusions reached in the London meeting.
