The Vice-President of the International sailing Federation Scott Perry (Uruguay) said in an interview with the Norwegian yacht magazine Seil.
That the financial position of World Sailing, as if it mildly, extremely volatile, in recent years many people have said, but for the first time about a possible – and near – bankruptcy was announced really loudly. And not someone else, and Vice-President of the international Federation.
According to Scott Perry, to World Sailing survived the coming summer, you must undertake a number of urgent measures. In particular to reduce the members of the professional staff salaries by 20%, to renegotiate the terms of the lease of the headquarters of the Federation in London and this year to the IOC part of the money for hosting the 2020 Olympics.
To implement the first step of the program is real, the second is highly debatable (in June will pay half a million pounds as an annual fee for the lease, and while a common language with the owners of the office cannot be found), while the third… the Olympics postponed to 2021 and, according to experts of the issue, hoped that the IOC now will translate Federation of the money for the Game, is just ridiculous.
The conclusion, which makes Perry: bankruptcy is more than possible, and in this situation it is necessary by all means to hold on to the re-election conference of the World Sailing in November, decisions which many in the Federation connects great hopes.bankruptcyfacessailingworld
