US Sailing is holding a meeting Feb. 6 in Atlanta with industry stakeholders to discuss an approach for growing sailing and to develop a framework for a plan to engage the entire sailing community.

Divergent voices have created confusion within the industry, the group said.

“If sailing is going to grow, it is critical for the sailing community to build a strong partnership and collaboration amongst the key players, including the industry, the media, the associations and most importantly the grassroots access points to sailing,” the announcement read.

“Our goal is to ignite a movement, create alignment within the sailing community and help execute the vision we all create,” the group said.

The event opens Feb. 5 with a cocktail reception at the Hilton Atlanta Airport Hotel and convenes at 7:30 a.m. the following day with breakfast, working sessions, lunch and opportunities for brainstorming.
