Olympic sailors to the occasional day sailor, millions participate
and follow the sport, often in the coveted AB1 social profiles

World Class performers like Nick and Joe
need World Class support, and sailing like may other sports
use the World Class Performance Programme money to fund:
- World Class Coaches
- Sports science and medicine back-up
- Warm-weather and acclimatisation training
- International competition programmes (including travel
- Athlete development programmes
- Training facilities
- Performance Directors to bring it all together.
Through the sport's national governing body,
the RYA, the funding received from WCP is used to provide
the athletes with the support they need.
Targets are set and agreed between the two
organisations, and the RYA sets about administering schemes
and implementing systems to meet these targets through the
support team at RYA House.
Elite athletes make many sacrifices in their
quest to represent their country at the highest levels. In
recognition of this fact, Athlete Personal Awards are paid
to athletes on sports' World Class Performance Programmes.
These awards are not salaries but a contribution to ensure
that athletes can train and perform to the highest levels
and, if they wish, work more flexibly, or indeed train full-time
to ensure that as much time as necessary is dedicated towards
training and competing. The awards are a contribution towards
basic living costs, personal training and sports equipment
costs. Athletes may also apply for a contribution towards
Contributions are calculated on the basis
of personal circumstances and according to the athlete's performance
level and world ranking. These awards are seldom enough to
provide a sole income, however, they provide substantial help
towards giving athletes the flexibility they need to concentrate
on their sport.
