Goals:

I want to create a World Sailing where regions and MNAs, are key to our future development. Regions and MNAs should be top of the pyramid. As part of an executive team, I will activate the resources and competencies within each region and within each nation. I will tackle the common challenges which lie ahead, taking into account the local perspectives and the needs of each region.

As part of an executive team, I will contribute to provide World Sailing with a clear strategic direction. I will make sailing decisions based on sailing reasons.

With your support, I will address the challenges faced by World Sailing. I will seize the opportunity to face the challenges straight on, delivering a common vision of the executive team by:
1. KEEPING SAILING IN THE OLYMPICS BY INCREASING PARTICIPATION AND GROWING THE GLOBAL AUDIENCE.
2. GROWING THE SPORT GEOGRAPHICALLY BY CREATING A COMPETITIVE OFFERING FOR YOUTH GLOBALLY.
3. INCREASING THE LEVELS OF TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY IN OUR GOVERNANCE.

Key actions towards 2020 to keep sailing in the Olympics:
• Get close to IOC/IPC family
• Reinstate sailing on the Paralympic programme
• Create an Olympic structure based on events, giving sailors and the public enlarge a clear path into the Olympics, from club championships to national championships, from regional qualifications to the Olympic Games, using a world class event structure • Increase the global audience by exploiting new media, using attractive formats and events.
• Create a new global audience by spreading the sport in to new markets and across different age groups by innovating in the Olympic and non-Olympic programmes and by reducing equipment and competition costs
• Cut costs and make sailing more accessible. This will be done by looking at cost drivers (coaching, specialist equipment etc.)

Key actions towards 2020 to grow the sport:
• Decentralise the management of the development programmes. All programmes should be managed in the regions, with the support of World Sailing helping to facilitate knowledge transfer and main quality standards
• Analyse participation, support and equipment costs and innovate new low cost and fun equipment sanctioned by World Sailing
• Develop youth programmes adoptable for different school and club structures globally
• Invest in increasing the pool of qualified trainers across the world to spread the sport and start programmes in all sections of society led by the MNAs
• Create a compelling story for the sport with heroes
• Spread this compelling story globally in a new and innovative way using social and digital media

Key actions towards 2020 to strengthen governance:
• Change the governance of World Sailing by aligning it to general standards of corporate governance with the full participation of all stakeholders and led by the World Sailing membership
• Present an Executive Committee working as a team and able to present sustainable longterm strategies for World Sailing
• Include Commercial partners and experts to help in the strategic discussions to ensure the growth of the sport
• Create one Executive Committee, standing behind one plan, focusing on the key areas which will take World Sailing forward
• Clarify the World Sailing governance structure. This includes clarifying the purpose of the decision-making bodies within the organisation
• Create an administrative structure which exists to service the membership by defining clear priorities for the staff and evaluate this twice a year
