From Wednesday 13th May, all forms of water-sports including sailing, windsurfing and motor-boating have been permitted in England.  We are continuing to work with our Home Country colleagues to monitor the situation and to lobby for a responsible and safe return for boaters in all parts of the UK.

For all sailors

As we take the first steps to getting back on the water, don't forget there are still lots of great opportunities to keep sailing and learning from home. There is something for everyone, including expert advice on everything from boat maintenance and cruising, to coaching sessions on Virtual Regatta and racing rules webinars. Or why not consider using this time to learn something new, or refresh your knowledge with an RYA training course online? Please see the #SailFromHome schedule below for details and links.

For racing sailors 

With new #SailFromHome content created each week you can stay up to date by following the British Sailing Team social media channels or subscribing to the BST YouTube channel. You will find videos where you can learn from the experts, follow workouts and get lots of top tips and advice.  For racing sailors and aspiring race officials we also have a Wednesday evening series introducing and explaining the racing rules of sailing. Each session, which is presented by a different rules expert each week, will be available through the RYA YouTube Channel.

For Clubs & Centres

'Marketing Mondays’ kick off the week and include webinars from the experts at SocialB on how to successfully use social media. On Thursdays don’t miss the Club Development videos which are packed full of advice and information from the Regional Development Officers. Clubs and Centres can also get top tips on how to get ahead with funding applications with the #FundingFriday webinars and stay in touch with all things #eSailing on Saturdays. Across the regions the Regional Development Officers will be delivering a series of online Club Development Forums on a range of topics to support your club including the safe return to activity. See link below to book onto the sessions.
