New guidance for World Sailing 2021-24
Published on February 1st, 2021
World Sailing’s Council, the ultimate decision-making body of World Sailing, have approved the appointments to the Committees and Commissions for 2021-24.
Members of World Sailing’s Committees and Commissions are deemed to be experts in their fields and include internationally renowned sailors, officials, coaches and administrators. Working within their terms of reference, they provide guidance to World Sailing in the interests and the wellbeing of the sport worldwide.
World Sailing’s Member National Authorities nominated hundreds of volunteers from around the globe, and the Board of Directors carried out a review of their CV’s bearing in mind a new set of key principles they devised such as: relevant experience and expertise, good female representation, strong geographical split, focus on emerging nations, and new members to introduce fresh thinking.
The World Sailing’s Board of Directors then put forward a list of Committee and Commission members to Council for ratification, which was unanimously approved.
“These members volunteer their time to sit within the World Sailing Committee and Commission structure,” noted David Graham, World Sailing Chief Executive Officer. “We are extremely fortunate to have a vast number of members with outstanding experience and a deep understanding of our sport, and we welcome them to our extended team.”
