World Sailing - Comments on the interview of Scott Perry

 World Sailing - Comments on the interview of Scott Perry Yesterday, seilmagasinet.no published an article, commenting on the interview of Scott Perry, World Sailing Vice-President, of Tuesday (hit Google translator button for English or your language). ----- President Kim Anderson DEN confirms that the PR firm TSE was involved in his presidential campaign in coordination with the Danish Sailing Federation and the Danish Olympic Committee, which is considered legal by the Danes. ----- Regarding the signature of a service contract with TSE by Andersen shortly after his election without approval by the Executive Board may be considered a conflict of interest infringement. Comes in addition, that the previous TSE relation has not been mentioned when this outsourcing business was on the table. Efforts are being made today to bring a formal complaint against Kim Andersen to the World Sailing Ethics Commission, the second complaint of Andersen in a short time. The first, where there is talk of forgery of signatures, is currently under consideration.

World Sailing - new Details on Leadership Problems - an Interview with Scott Perry, Vice-President, URU

 World Sailing - new Details on Leadership Problems - an Interview with Scott Perry, Vice-President, URU Mikkel Thommessen NOR, the editor of the Norwegian seilmagasinet.no, just published another Act in his investigations about the out-of-line situation with World Sailing, based on an interview with Scott Perry URU, World Sailing Vice President. Facts are, that the international federation is in deep financial problems and is actually "sailing under jury rig", i.e. loans and government support, and the still possible cancelation of the Tokyo 2020/1 Olympics would produce unpredictable troubles. ----- Apparently, strategic and operational decisions with major financial implications have been made based on incomplete information, especially the unforced move from the affordable Office at the Southampton Harbor to expensive downtown London, combined with a headcount increase of up to 30 persons. Contracts have been signed without the approval of the Board. President Kim Anderson DEN might be involved in a conflict-of-interest in a deal with an outside service provider, matter not yet formally examined. ----- No reaction to the article from World Sailing yet available. ----- As previously reported in our news, more and more Member National Authorities, International Classes, as well as Media, hope for a correction of the unpleasant situation by electing a new President and Executive Board in the coming November.
