Whistle Blowing

World Sailing is committed to conducting itself with honesty and integrity, and it expects all its members, officers, volunteers, race officials and staff to maintain high standards of behaviour. However, all organisations face the risk of things going wrong from time to time, or of unknowingly harbouring illegal or unethical conduct. A culture of openness and accountability is essential in order to prevent such situations occurring and to address them when they do occur.

Anyone can raise a concern (be they athlete, member, race official etc.) Due to UK employment law, a different policy applies to our staff raising concerns (which is notified in our Staff Handbook and equally as comprehensive).

You can find details of our whistleblowing procedures, how to raise a concern, and who to, here.
