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 - Midyear Meeting - more troubles ....

 World Sailing - Midyear Meeting - more troubles .... On June 24th, beleaguered World Sailing has held its Mid-Year Meeting with a restricted audience and using video technology for the first time due to the Corona restrictions. Before the meeting, Markus Schwendtner GER, Council member as Chairman of the Classes Committee circulated a letter calling for the meeting to be open to observers, i.e. the Classes, which was denied, as confidential financial information would be discussed. ----- We informed earlier, that World Sailing is in deep financial troubles caused by the mismanagement of the responsible President Kim Andersen DEN and the Executive Board. In a very detailed article in SailWorld published two days ago, Richard Gladwell NZL presents the letter exchange concerning admission to the meeting as mentioned above, and gives above all an overview on facts causing the financial disaster. ----- Federations, international and also national, have been created to serve its members, be it for World Sailing, the Member National Authorities, or on a national basis, the Clubs. Unfortunately, there is always a danger, that officials in charge, lost in self-promoter interests, depart from the principal raison d'être, spending human and financial resources on items of no real value for its member. There is hope, that this will be corrected with a new Executive Board to be elected in November 2020.

Support of the International Olympic Committee for financially broken World Sailing

 Support of the International Olympic Committee for financially broken World Sailing Already before the Corona crisis, World Sailing was out-of-line financially due to mismanagement. The fact that the IOC announced support for International Federations with financial problems due to the Corona restrictions was obviously warmly welcomed by the sailing federation. The 42 federations domiciled in Switzerland received in addition financial support of the Swiss Government (not the case for World Sailing London). Details about the amount and form of this support have not been given in the report of World Sailing. With the postponement of the Olympic Games, many federations are facing major financial problems. ----- Normally, the profit of the Olympic Games, mainly from television rights, is distributed after the Games to the National Olympic Committees and the International Federations, the latter categorized as to their importance in the media world. After Rio 2016, sailing considered as "minor sport", received 15 million $ from the IOC, the principal revenue to run the federation. The 2019 financial statements, assumably with a deep red bottom line, have not yet been published, and the 2020 operation seems to largely depend on external credits. It is not known whether and how the financial recovery will be brought about. Concerned circles hope for a new beginning after the election of a new Executive Committee at the General Assembly in November 2020, in person or electronically (Corona restricted).
