Key recommendations presented at US Sailing Meeting    
Wed, 21 Nov 2012

At US Sailing’s Annual Meeting in San Francisco, an independent Olympic Review Panel presented a report of its findings and recommendations after a two-month evaluation of the U.S. Olympic Sailing Program. It was presented to and accepted by the Board of Directors on November 2nd and presented to the Olympic Sailing Committee on November 3rd in consideration for the 2013 to 2016 Olympic quadrennium.

The report reviews the Olympic Sailing Program over the past four years of the 2009-2012 Olympic quadrennium and offers analysis of what worked and didn’t work, and presents recommendations for future strategy.

'The Olympic Review Panel did excellent work on this assignment,' said Josh Adams, Managing Director of U.S. Olympic Sailing, who led the panel. 'Their findings and recommendations form a body of information that we can use as a positive influence on our Olympic Sailing strategy going forward.'

In August, US Sailing’s past President Gary Jobson (term through Nov. 3, 2012) appointed the independent panel, a group of American sailors with extensive experience in Olympic sailing. The panel included Ed Adams (Middletown, R.I.), Andrew Campbell (San Diego, Calif.), Jay Cross (New York, N.Y.), Andrew Kostanecki (Bridgewater, Vt.), Bill Martin (Dearborn, Mich.), Jack Mathias (Buffalo, N.Y.), Jonathan McKee (Seattle, Wash.), Cory Sertl (Rochester, N.Y.), and Tim Wadlow (Beverly, Mass.).

'The panel’s assignment was to conduct a comprehensive review of Olympic sailing in this country in its current state; to form conclusions about performance in Weymouth; and to recommend changes going forward,' said Jobson. 'I’m grateful to the panel members for their diligence and dedication to USA’s Olympic sailing program.'
