The International Sailing Federation is looking to recruit a head for the Sailing World Cup as part of a revamp of the annual series of regattas for the Olympic and Paralympic classes later this year
ISAF has not divulged much information about the new-look series, stating only that it will start in December and end with a Grand Final.
The chosen candidate, who must have "familiarity with the world of sailing at an Olympic level", will be responsible for the implementation and success of the new Sailing World Cup, including all associated sponsorship and commercial activities.
Success in the role will be measured by ensuring that "within three years" the ISAF Sailing World Cup is recognised, by sailors and specialist media, as "the pinnacle event for Olympic sailing next to the Olympic Games."
In addition, the new recruit must also guarantee the ISAF Sailing World Cup drives sponsor opportunities and sponsor value, and is of "increasing commercial value" for ISAF, national sailing teams and individual sailors.
Applications should be submitted to ISAF chief executive Jerome Pels by March 4, with interviews to follow at the ISAF headquaters in Southampton, in the south of England, later that month.
The ISAF Sailing World Cup has diminished in profile in recent years, with the series being reduced from seven to four events in 2012-13.
There are five stops in the 2013-14 World Cup: Qingdao, China; Melbourne, Australia; Miami, USA; Majorca, Spain; and Hyeres, France.
