World Sailing Judicial Decisions

Published on April 21st, 2020

Disciplinary and appeal decisions within World Sailing are determined by Independent Panels appointed by the Judicial Board. Decisions made by MNAs are decided by the disciplinary systems of those MNAs.

The Judicial Board members are: Charlie Manzoni QC, SC (Chair), Bruce Collins QC, Ruth Miller, and Luis Velasco. Questions, reports, or comments on disciplinary matters should be sent by email or in writing to the Chief Executive Officer.
