Conflict of Interest

World Sailing Race Officials are ambassadors and role models guided by principles of fairness, impartiality and integrity. At all times we must avoid the appearance of conflicts.

Regulation 34 concerns Conflict of Interest and reads as folllows:

34.1 A conflict of interest exists when a Race Official has, or reasonably appears to have, a personal or financial interest which could affect the officials ability to be impartial.
34.2 When a Race Official is aware of a conflict of interest, he/she shall decline an invitation to serve at a regatta at which an International Jury is appointed.
34.3 When the Race Official has any doubt whether or not there is a conflict of interest, the Race Official shall promptly consult World Sailing, prior to accepting the invitation and be bound by its decision.
34.4 When, at an event, a Race Official becomes aware of a conflict of interest, the official shall disclose the potential conflict to the International Jury which shall take appropriate action.

Other Regulations relating to conflict of interest are 25.8.5, 32 and 35 - Click here to read the World Sailing Regulations in full.
