World Sailing names Governance Commission

World Sailing has appointed Maria Clarke (NZL) to head Governance Commission to look at how World Sailing is Governed ?

Maria Clarke joins World Sailing Vice President Jan Dawson (NZL), Philip Baum (RSA), Malav Shroff (IND), Sarah Treseder (GBR) and Luis Velasco (ARG) as a member of the Commission.

The Commission has already begun its programme of work and will hold its first full in-person meeting in London in May 2018.

The Commission will focus its work on roles, rights and responsibilities between the World Sailing Annual General Meeting, the Council, the Board of Directors, and the various committees and commissions.

It will also look at the complexity and timeliness of the World Sailing decision making processes and will also propose specific measures for developing best practice in sports governance.

The Commission will then consider and recommend changes to the composition, powers, functions and procedures before reporting to the Board and Council in November 2018.

These changes will be presented in their final form to the Board in February 2019 and then put forward for final approval at the October 2019 Annual Conference in Hamilton, Bermuda.
