World Sailing will hold its 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM) and General Assembly electronically, due to the global challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Abu Dhabi, UAE was scheduled to host World Sailing's 2020 Annual Conference from 24 October, with the AGM and General Assembly concluding the meeting on 1 November.

Due to ongoing travel restrictions, World Sailing's Board of Directors resolved to hold the AGM and General Assembly electronically, in accordance with a written special resolution approved by World Sailing's Member National Authorities in June.

World Sailing's Annual Conference comprises a number of Commission, Sub-committee, Committee and Council meetings. These meetings will also be hosted electronically.

Subject to approval by World Sailing's Council, the main decision-making body of World Sailing, Abu Dhabi will now host the 2021 Annual Conference and AGM from 20-31 October.
