OnBoard is the RYA’s grassroots sailing programme right?
Wrong! Well, sort of wrong…
The RYA explain why:
OnBoard is as much about windsurfing as it is dinghies, and as the programme approaches its 10th anniversary year in 2015, a large number of youngsters continue to discover windsurfing through OnBoard’s nationwide network of clubs and centres.
In its first decade, Britain’s youngsters have enjoyed over 480,000 first windsurfing and sailing experiences through OnBoard with over 39,000 youngsters becoming regulars. The aim is to have introduced half a million youngsters by next year and to retain 10% of these youngsters in the sport.
“I love windsurfing, I love all of it. The speed is the best bit. When I’m on the water it makes me feel happy and good. I enjoy making new friends.
