The EUROSAF Annual General Meeting 2019 took place from 19 to 21 of April in Istanbul. Thanks to the professional organisation of the Turkish Sailing Federation, 37 delegates, observers and guests could fully concentrate on the extensive and diversified program. All in all 25 member nations have been represented in Turkey, leading to interesting and goal-oriented discussions among the participants.
First time also a meeting for Committee Chairs and Committee Members has been organised, giving the opportunity to get a broader view about current issues of each committee and to connect members with each other. The EUROSAF Meeting was attended also by World Sailing President Kim Andersen. He joined the whole program from Friday evening on, on Saturday he gave a key note speech right after the Ordinary General Assembly.
While Saturday morning until the early afternoon was dedicated to the formal and administrative matters of the 22 Ordinary General Assembly, the later afternoon was open for presentations given by EUROSAF Committees, event organisers and guests. The Annual General Meeting in Istanbul was closed on Sunday noon.
A great evening program, organized by the Turkish Sailing Federation, completed a fruitful weekend for European sailing.
