Sail publisher named director of U.S. Olympic Sailing

Posted on

US Sailing said it named Josh Adams managing director of U.S. Olympic Sailing, effective Sept. 4.

Adams comes to US Sailing after seven years as publisher of Sail magazine and has an extensive background in Olympic sailing. Since 2005 he has been an executive committee member of US Sailing’s Olympic Sailing Committee. As an elite competitor and a member of the U.S. sailing team in 1995-96, he finished second at the 1996 Olympic Trials in the 470.

“After months of research and an extensive interview process, we are confident that Josh Adams is the right individual to take the U.S. Olympic Sailing program to the next level,” US Sailing president Gary Jobson said in a statement.

Adams’ primary focus will be the recruitment and development of young sailors with Olympic aspirations, Jobson added.

“The challenge ahead for the U.S. Olympic Sailing Program is significant,” Adams said in a statement. “So is the opportunity. As it stands now, 40 percent of the classes in the Rio 2016 quadrennium will be new. We need to lead our US Sailing team Sperry Top-Sider to be performance-centric, to adapt quickly to the new boats and to build depth in the established classes. At the same time we need to commit ourselves to a sustainable youth development strategy. Building a program around performance and youth development is a goal that I look forward to leading.”
