Aims and Objectives of the ISAF Development Symposium

The first ISAF Development Symposium was held in 2012 as a forum for all ISAF Member National Authorities (MNAs) to discuss areas of Training and Development related work and input into the overall strategy of the International Sailing Federation.

International delegates at this important receive presentations from a number of invited Experts in a variety of sport specific disciplines and take part in break-away sessions where they are encouraged to interact with other delegates, often from other Nations. The ISAF Development Symposium directly compliments the work of the ISAF Development and Youth Committee with the report from this event helping ISAF to gather valuable information on how its work can continue to develop, giving those delegates present who are mostly from New or Emerging Nations a much needed chance to have their voice heard.
