In the last four years, as Vice President, I worked on specific areas of our sport and ISAF: I believe that the knowledge and the experience I have so acquired will be of benefit for our sport and ISAF hence I am looking forward to continue working on some of those areas (e.g. ISAF Sailing World Cup).
I believe that we, together, need to put more emphasis on the communication among the Executive Committee, MNAs, Council members, Committees, Continental Associations, sailors and coaches to create a new spirit so that everyone feels part of the same ISAF and we can work efficiently, as an integrated and strong group, for the renewal of our sport and ISAF.
Finally I have decided to pledge my energy, dedication and passion for another four years with Eric Tulla as he shares the same goals and vision for the future of our sport and ISAF
