Royal Yachting Association

The Royal Yachting Association (RYA) nominates members of the RYA UK Junior Squad or RYA UK Youth Squad, or sailors who are part of a recognised and selected British Youth Sailing international team or squad.

You can read further criteria here.

The Nomination Process

SportsAid only supports unfunded athletes who are nominated by their sport's national governing body. This ensures the right athletes get the right help at the right time - enhancing the sports' talent development programmes rather than duplicating them. Nominations take place every autumn.

You should contact your sport about whether you meet the criteria for the next round of SportsAid awards. Meeting the nomination criteria does not necessarily guarantee a SportsAid award because the charity can only distribute what it has fundraised.
