As well as £80 of free resources available to order, take a look at our Discover Sailing hub in Club Zone for top tips, how-to guides and editable resources. For ordering branded and bespoke materials like flags and banners, the closing date for the next print run is 7 March.

Steering the Course: 20-29 May

Sailing clubs are once again invited to celebrate women in in boating as part of World Sailing’s international Steering the Course campaign. Returning for 2022, the campaign aims to highlight women and their roles in the sport, promote opportunities and encourage participation.

Initiatives in 2021 included sharing stories on social media, taster sessions, women helm prizes and supporting females to become instructors or race coaches. Or you may simply want to start a conversation with your female members about what is needed to enable them to get out on the water more often. Find out more and sign up here.
