Our Region covers from Mumbles to Chepstow, and as far north as Llangorse. We therefore have a variety of sea and reservoir sailing. The South Regional Committee currently has 15 affiliated clubs in South Wales.
The regional committee oversees the successful Club Youth Race Circuit (CYRC) and the youth squad systems but these are mostly covered elsewhere and these pages will concentrate on the family and adult sailing activities.
We have input to the main RYA Cymru Wales board and sub-committees and therefore have some influence over the overall direction that sailing takes in Wales. We have the direct support of Sam Healy, our South Region Development Officer who provides advice, guidance and direction to the clubs in the region. Our main aims are to;
Promote and improve sailing activity in South Wales
- Enhance the capabilities of the affiliated clubs and our volunteers
- Share ideas and best practice amongst the clubs
- Work with RYA Cymru Wales to deliver the current strategic goals and make South Wales one the of the best places in the word to be a sailor
To provide visibility on our activities, pages will be added covering:
Our affiliated clubs and centres
- Open meetings in the region
- Lists of common courses run by sailing clubs in the region such as First Aid, VHF, PB2.
