Run by the RYA, OnBoard is a grass roots programme which introduces
sailing and windsurfing to young people aged 8 to 18, through schools, youth
groups and training centres. The sessions are designed to promote equal
access to sailing for young people from all social and economic backgrounds,
whilst encouraging their character development. Over a 13 year period OnBoard
has introduced over 900,000 young people to sailing and windsurfing. For more information about how to get involved in sailing visit our OnBoard webpage.
