blow a check

We left out a not so small detail in our commentary about US Sailing CEO Jack Geirhart getting the boot. According to the 2018 IRS990, Geirhart took $260,000 in salary and bonus, not including retirement contributions.

Think about that for a minute. The head of US Sailing making over a quarter million dollars a year, and for what? Did he make any difference at all for you? Of course he didn’t.

It is an outrage that your governing body of your sport blows that much of your money for one person. Makes one wonder how much they blow on other things, like paying another site to run it’s propaganda for example? This is shameful and fucking embarrassing. You might want to think twice before you write them another check…
