1. The position announcement states "The candidate will probably have a technical degree or similar qualification, experience in the manufacture of GRP small craft and in resins, and be familiar with mast technology and sail making." I am only an amateur w.r.t. to these specific requirements. I do not even qualify. (My Ph.D. is in Operations Management/Management Science.)
2. Aren't you aware of the politics involved? I could be the worst nightmare ILCA and the builders could face. Ian Lineberger (USA), Jeff Martin (GBR), Ryan Minth (USA), Tracy Usher (USA), Chip Johns (USA), and Tim Coventry (GBR) - all members of the World Council - are all class leaders that I have severely criticized in the past while defending various rights of Laser sailors.
3. Can you imagine "drLaser" losing its independence and appearing as part of the "system"? It would be a loss to Lasering.
