On the publication of the report, Andersen commented, “Since the publication of the 2018 ASOIF report, World Sailing has strived to uphold a culture of integrity, good governance and transparency in our operations. Whilst we remain in A2, we did not want to become complacent with our position and our increased score highlights that we have not rested on our laurels during this period. I’m delighted that we have improved our score and remain in a strong position.”
“Operating under a good governance structure is crucial for an International Federation to thrive and we will continue to look to evolve and uphold the integrity of our beautiful sport. It brings me great pleasure to see World Sailing’s work, such as our electoral procedures, efforts in sustainability and auditing recognised by ASOIF.
“I thank the ASOIF Governance Taskforce and experts involved in the process and the World Sailing staff and community for their ongoing commitment to safeguarding our sport.”
