Back when the Olympic Committee were looking for a new single-hander, and the Contender was a contender, one of the designs submitted was for a class to be called the Single Handed International Type, and the designer wanted the initials on the sail. Rumour has it this was approved at the first meeting, and only later someone rumbled.

I seem to recall that to sail this boat one had to have Special High Intensity Training.
