World Sailing is not planning to have a new chief executive in place until next year owing to financial issues caused in part by the coronavirus pandemic, its President Kim Andersen has revealed.

World Sailing is in the final stages of negotiating an overdraft facility to cover an expected cash fall in the middle of next year.
Andy Hunt has left his role as World Sailing's chief executive, having notified the Board of Directors that he will be taking on a new role in international sport early next year.
