I think more likely the rings were on it because it was the Olympic class one-design board/sail for 1984 and it was likely owned by someone training for or trying to qualify for the Olympics.

From the competitors in the 1984 games, there are only 3 with country name or current country code that begins with I:
Italy (ITA), US Virgin Islands (ISV), Israel (ISR)

My best guess is Italy; if you wanted to pursue you could try contacting the Italian Sailing Federation:

Or you could try to track down Klaus Maran, the Italian sailor in the Windglider in 1984. Just googling him brings up all kinds of hits and interesting photos.

Pretty sure that Windglider was a brand, the brand chosen for Olympic windsurfing that year. Maybe it was a commemorative sail.

Looking at the results, I think a few of those guys are racing on Konas.
