Sailing Leadership Forum 2014

Message from US Sailing Executive Director Jack Gierhart

Dear John,

What a great few days in San Diego! Thank you for participating in the Sailing Leadership Forum and helping make it a spectacular event. You represent an incredible cross section of sailing, and your energy and enthusiasm shines a very positive light on the future of sailing.

It was really encouraging to hear similar messages and themes throughout all the sessions. Inspiring conversations carried out into hallway meetings, during lunch and over drinks at the bar. Collaboration, no wrong answers, out of the box thinking, bold goals, diversity, and evolving sailing to attract new participants were ideas on everyone’s mind. The era of “No” is history.

Finally, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to all those that made the Forum possible: the presenters who volunteered their time to share their experiences; US Sailing volunteers who helped develop the topics and programming; our sponsors and exhibitors whose financial support was essential; and the sailing industry whose engagement was welcome, and will be critical to the future of sailing. Thank you all.

Thank you again for coming to San Diego to share your passion for sailing. This is just the start. We are committed to maintaining the momentum the Forum generated by working together to address the issues sailing faces and ensure a healthy future.

Thank you for supporting US Sailing. We look forward to seeing you on the water.


Jack Gierhart and the team at US Sailing
