“Accounts for World Sailing (UK) Limited indicate that Andy Hunt was paid £192,393 ($248,379/€222,791) in 2018.” … Good riddance maybe – but why was this guy hired in the first place?

World Sailing is in the final stages of negotiating an overdraft facility to cover an expected cash fall in the middle of next year.
