Kim Andersen
President, World Sailing
Kim Andersen

I am very proud to be an International Gender Champion. Promoting gender equality is not only important for World Sailing, but for international sport as a whole. Through the means of sport, we hope to have our own impact on developing a society that is more ethical, equal and effective. Together as Champions, we can make a huge difference.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • By implementing a progression of new training and education programmes over the next quadrennial we aim to achieve Gender Equity for race officials at the Olympic Games & World Sailing Championships by 2028

  • Through a series of reforms we aim to target a 50% gender equality on the Executive Board and Athlete’s Commission by 2021
