The International Sailing Federation (ISAF) has now announced the new members of the ISAF Council, the final decision-making body of ISAF. The new members of the ISAF Council were made known at the ISAF General Assembly in Dun Laoghaire, Ireland.

The Council is chaired by the ISAF President Carlo Croce (ITA) and also includes the seven Vice-Presidents, the Treasurer (non-voting) who is yet to be confirmed, 28 representatives of ISAF Member National Authorities (MNAs) and one representative each from athletes’ commission, ISAF Classes, Offshore sailing and Women's sailing.

In addition, the ISAF Presidents of Honour, His Majesty King Harald V of Norway and His Majesty King Constantine, are entitled to attend and participate in Council meetings although they do not hold a vote. The new Council members will serve a four-year term up until the ISAF General Assembly in November 2016.

The new members of the ISAF Council are:

President and Chairman – elected by ISAF MNAs at 2012 ISAF General Assembly: Carlo Croce (ITA)

Vice-Presidents – elected by ISAF MNAs at 2012 ISAF General Assembly

Chris Atkins (GBR)
Adrienne Greenwood (NZL)
Nazli Imre (TUR)
Gary Jobson (USA)

W Scott Perry (URU)

Treasurer (non-voting): To be appointed in due course.

It is the responsibility of the ISAF Council to manage the business of the International Sailing Federation. Ultimately, policy decisions within ISAF, including any amendments to the ISAF Regulations, are subject to the approval of the Council.

The ISAF Committee members, who are appointed primarily because of their expertise in a particular area, of the ISAF Council are required to represent their national viewpoint. Through this mechanism the process of ISAF's decision-making reaches its climax at the ISAF Council meeting. Council members exercise their vote based on the recommendations provided the expert ISAF Committees, the views of the Member Nations they represent and the requirement to have regard to the interests of the sport worldwide.

The new Council met for the first time on the final day of the 2012 ISAF Annual Conference. Following on from this meeting, one of the first tasks of the Council will be to confirm the appointment of ISAF Committee Chairman, Vice-Chairman and Committee members for 2013-2016.

The new Executive Committee will meet on 11 November 2012 in Dun Laoghaire.
