On the strategy, Massimo Dighe, Para World Sailing Manager commented, “World Sailing is committed to growing Para sailing and giving more opportunities to sailors. The strategy sets out what our key priorities are so we can consolidate and build on the success and growth we have delivered over the last five years.
“Through the strategy we will increase opportunities for all sailors with attractive new classes and an increase in cooperation with existing classes such as the Hansa 303, RS Venture Connect and the 2.4mR.
“Furthermore, we will work closely with our MNAs to increase the number of global events for Para sailors and deliver Para Development Programmes.”
