Pepe Martínez David has decided to present his candidacy for the presidency of the Royal Spanish Sailing Federation (FFEV). An economist by profession, he has been linked to this sport since his youth. He has been vice president of the RFEV, president of the National Cruise Committee and currently serves as vice president of the Sailing Federation of the Valencian Community (FVCV), of which he was the top leader for 12 years.
Pepe Martínez will present in the next few days his decalogue of proposals, to the members of his management team and his action program to carry out a «transformation and modernization of the Royal Spanish Sailing Federation, which must become a close, useful entity that provides service, in coordination with the regional federations, to the almost 50,000 federated members and the clubs in their work of promotion, dissemination, competition and management of the national Olympic team.
Martínez assures that he wants to «listen and attract all sensibilities, promote the sporting life of yacht clubs, open doors and windows and enhance communication channelsn in a call to all federated members to make their contribution to federative life and the promotion of our sport. Your candidacy, of broad territorial base as for the origin of their support is a collective project that flees from personalities and that it will have a clear parity spirit in line with the democratic, social and participatory values that it promotes.
He is convinced that he will manage the RFEV with economic rigor, with a clear plan for returning to competition after the pandemic is over and with a determined support for athletes, the national team and the clubs. Pepe Martínez advances «we want to organize our federation again under the prism of efficiency, ethics, equality and social and environmental commitment with our environment. The federation must be active in its contribution to fulfilling the objectives of the 2030 Agenda and in terms of management, we must guarantee sporting results and the promotion of a solid and growing base of practitioners, which will be a priority to strengthen our institutional presence and the active participation in international federative bodies. For all this, now more than ever, coordination and the search for broad consensus is necessary to make sailing the successful and prestigious sport that we all desire.
“The Federation must become a close, useful entity that provides service, in coordination with the autonomous federations, to the almost 50,000 federated members and to all the clubs”
The candidacy represented by Pepe Martínez David and his entire management team views sailing as a «collective and egalitarian project », in all fields. The spirit conveyed by the current vice president of the FVCV is based on his idea that sailing “we are all”. In his opinion, «the Olympic classes and those that are not, professionals and amateurs, all fans are ambassadors of our sport because a transformation like the one our society is experiencing, technological and cultural, requires that a federation like ours is up to the task. Professional recycling, continuous improvement of our equipment, updating our clubs and schools, will allow us to optimize our services and our value proposition to be considered by citizens as a healthy and enriching leisure alternative in the daily life of human beings ».
