Lovegrove Set For ISA Presidency In New Year

#ISA - Howth Yacht Club's David Lovegrove has been nominated to succeed Niamh McCutcheon as president of the Irish Sailing Association (ISA) next spring, as The Irish Times reports.

Lovegrove is a former commodore of his North Dublin club and presently one of Ireland's top international race officers, coming off what Afloat's WM Nixon describes as an "extraordinary" performance in the role for the J/24s in 2013.

Come 2014 he's set to preside over an era of big changes for the ISA, following the announcement last month than an independent group has been appointed to form a new strategic plan for sailing's national governing body.

The Strategic Review Group is led by the Royal St George's Brian Craig - whose role, according to Lovegrove, persuaded him to accept McCutcheon's nomination for the ISA's top job.

Indeed, Lovegrove says he's up to the challenge, telling the paper that "the ISA needs to go through a fundamental change".
