Your Regional Team 









The Regional Integrated Team is comprised of three groups working together for the benefit of the Region, its Clubs and Members:

  • The Regional Volunteer Team (RVT);
  • Specialist Appointment Holders, e.g. Regional Planning and Environment Co-ordinator (RPEC), the Coastal Navigation or Inland Waterway representatives (CNP and INP) and racing related appointments: the Regional Racing Rules Adviser (RRA) and  the Race Management Co-ordinator (RMC);
  • Staff such as the Regional Development Officer (RDO) or Sailing Development Officer (SDO), High Performance Manager (HPM) and the Disability Development Office (DDO).

Together, the team provides:

  • Liaison between the Region's Clubs and the RYA;
  • Co-ordination and encouragement of RYA National Training Schemes;
  • Representation of the wider interests of all forms of sailing, windsurfing, cruising, inland waterways and powerboating within the Region.

The team can be contacted via the contacts page of this site.
