ISAF Athletes' Commission Elections: Voting Closed For RS:X and 470 Classes; Voting Deadline Extended For Finn Class
Voting in the ISAF Athletes' Commission elections has now closed for the Men's RS:X, Men's 470 and Women's 470 representatives, whilst the voting deadline for the Finn class representative has been extended until 28 June.
The elections will determine the members of the ISAF Athletes' Commission for 2009-2013. The Commission, which is formed of 10 active sailors representing each of the Olympic sailing events, gives athletes a clear voice within the ISAF structure by reporting directly to the ISAF Executive Committee.
Athletes' were invited to nominate candidates for a position on the Commission for 2009-2013. For the six events of the 10 events where there was only one candidate nominated, that candidate has been automatically elected. The remaining four events - Men's RS:X, Finn, Men's 470 and Women's 470 - had more than one candidate. Voting for the Men's RS:X, Men's 470 and Women's 470 candidates has now closed. Voting for the Finn candidate has been extended until 24:00 UTC on Sunday 28 June.
Finn sailors who are 'actively campaigning for the Olympics' and ranked on the Finn ISAF World Sailing Rankings are entitled to vote. Each athlete may vote only once. The vote you cast will be final.
Voting will be determined by simply majority, with the candidate receiving the most votes by 24:00 hours on Sunday 28 June 2009 elected. In the case of a draw in the number of votes, the athlete who is highest on the ISAF World Rankings as at 22 June 2009 will be elected.
