Ian Walker lands top job at the RYA
Many congratulations to Ian Walker, Volvo Ocean Race superstar, America’s cup sailor, Yachtsman of the Year, Olympic medallist and former Topper Top Dog sailor, who has just been appointed as the RYA’s Director of Racing. He starts in the Autumn and takes over from John Derbyshire.
Ian will oversee the RYA’s World Class Programme and talent pathways, as well as the broader remit of racing participation in all its forms in the UK.
In 2016 Ian was made Yachtsman of the Year alongside Topper’s own Ellie Poole, who was voted Young Sailor of the Year.
Again in January 2017 Ian presented Elliott Kuzyk, Topper World Champion 2016, with the Young Sailor of the Year award.
ITCA (GBR) looks forward to working with Ian and his team.
