World Sailing General Assembly

Recommended Posts

Just watched the video. Can anyone confirm that this is the same organisation that primarily exists to organize events? As in, it's event organizing that they do?

Actually, they think they now exist to organize events.

 

They really exist only to serve as infrastructure support for the sport. A couple of people are trying to run events to make a buck and have hijacked the organization for power and profit..

Well that event, with all the event organizers there, was a shambles.

That's the brilliance of CEO Andy Hunt on display.

So ham-fisted. They all just wanted to go to lunch.

They didn't allow any Australians. Something to do with being accused of running kangaroo courts.

Maybe if you incentivized it with a way to win something from your desk?

 

Maybe a set of Gazprom steak knives or a Gazprom Nutri-Bullet.

Well now we all know where the wasted money goes......

 

Supporting this waste of time.

 

How long does it take to vote on new leadership

Not very impressive proceedings. All the same I’m surprised now one has been commenting on the new president.

I'll comment, "It won't matter".

 

 

The problems with sailing run so deep. Kids get in to it for fun and coaches quickly turn it into a race for gold.

Kids drop out and find something where they can have inexpensive fun with friends, Parents are happy.

World Sailing is unfortunately beyond repair. Hundreds of committees and working groups all over the place and none of them appointed by the people that matter... us!

 

Zero consultation and a complete disrespect for the sailing community.

 

The Gazprom money has allowed the head of the snake, W. Scott Perry, to survive and the position of President has had all powers removed thanks to the pro-active work this year from Jon Napier and Andy Hunt.

 

The future is the new people in kite surfing (oops!... I mean kite sailing) getting more power to challenge the corrupt old cunts. When a 60 year old candidate for President is called the young guy we have a problem.

 

I'd have to agree the whole Olympic bullshit has destroyed the sport as a fun thing for kids to do. Kids are destroyed every day in this sport. The only guy that understood this was Sowrey.

The problem is we don't know what his strategy is. All we hear about is Olympics and getting feedback from MNAs about the Olympics. I think we all would like to see change and consultation with the real sailing community, not just the small minority that compete at the Olympics.

 

The real issue that he was elected on is the lack of respect and consultation with the people they are supposed to represent and support.
