It is with great sadness ISAF reports that Jang-Yeon Moon (KOR), a former ISAF Council Member and International Judge, has died.
A lifelong sailor and Korean Sailing Federation Training Director and Regional Race Officer, Jang-Yeon passed away after a sudden heart attack.

Jang-Yeon's work with ISAF began in 1997 when he was appointed an International Judge. Three years later he became involved the Regional Games Committee where he sat until 2004.

Jang-Yeon was instrumental in bringing the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championships to Busan, Korea in 2005 and brought his experience from the 2002 Asian Games Sailing Competition, where he served as regatta coordinator, to another successful edition of the Youth Worlds.

Four years after the 2005 ISAF Youth Worlds Jang-Yeon was back on the Regional Games Committee where he sat until recently at the 2012 ISAF Annual Conference in Dun Laoghaire, Ireland.

As Vice-President of the Busan Sailing Federation, Jang-Yeon was looking forward to the 2013 ISAF Women's Match Racing Championships in his home town where he was set to lead the umpire team.

ISAF extends our sincere sympathy and condolences to his wife, son and daughter.
