One of the planet's most accomplished and celebrated sailors, Iain Percy OBE, will speak at the World Yacht Racing Forum, in Gothenburg, Sweden on December 10-11. Team manager of the America’s Cup team Artemis Racing, representing Sweden, Percy will attend the America’s Cup session and share his vision about the future of the event.

Percy is a double Olympic champion and silver medallist for Great Britain (2000 Finn class Gold, 2008 Star class Gold and 2012 Silver, alongside the late Andrew Simpson).

'I am delighted to be involved in the World Yacht Racing Forum and I look forward to sharing my vision of the sport with key members of our industry,' he commented.

The World Yacht Racing Forum gives the sailing world the ability to gather together and help shape the future of our industry. I look forward to being part of it.'

Now in its sixth year, the World Yacht Racing Forum is the leading yacht racing industry conference, and is the only occasion in the year where key players from yacht racing event organisers, teams, sponsors, agencies and sailors gather together and help shape the future of the yacht racing industry discussing topical debates.
