Luca Devoti, (57, Verona, Italy, based in Spain since 2005) shares his vision with the international sailing community about a new sustainable sport. The Italian Finn Silver Medalist and former America's Cup skipper is officially an aspiring candidate for Vice-Presidency of the 2020-2024 World Sailing Board.

"I have thought long and hard about presenting this candidacy. I have a huge respect for those who, before me, have steered World Sailing. At the same time, I believe I can provide value by contributing my experience and passion at these difficult times,
and therefore I am ready and willing to stand up as a candidate.

I believe that my past and current professional engagement in different activities in the sailing world provide me with a comprehensive insight into the culture and interests of sailors, coaches, different MNA's and manufacturers".

A sailor all his life, Luca Devoti started his sport career in Lake Garda (Northern Italy) at the age of 18 and won an Olympic Silver Medal (Finn Class) in Sydney at the age of 38. Skipper for the Italian team +39 in the 32nd America's Cup (Valencia, 2007),
