I believe I can make a difference in the way ISAF is managing its responsibilities. ISAF needs to make a strong effort to improve its governance, in order to successfully cope with the current and future challenges.

As a sailor (forty years) and as an active member of various Sailing and Nautical Associations (twelve years) I came to understand the aspirations of the Sailors and the difficulties in developing Sailing in a world where access to Sailing financing, public and private, became increasingly difficult.

ISAF must stick to sound principles of transparency, integrity, democracy and high moral standards, reflecting the aspirations of its constituents. ISAF must also be imaginative, innovative and courageous in dealing with the inseparable economics, businesses and politics issues involved.

I pledge that should I be elected, I will be an outspoken voice defending relentlessly all those seeking Justice and seeking the respect of Olympic Charter Principles.
