Sustainable Boating
09 Sep 2021

As a sport that relies on healthy seas and oceans, sailors have a vested interest in its future. The RYANI believes strongly in protecting the environment and, as the joint organising authority of the RYANI Youth Championships 2021, alongside CSC, we aim to reduce the environmental impact of our event and raise awareness of key environmental issues.  Click on the link above to see out Event Charter that we ask all those at the event to consider and follow both ashore and afloat.

 John Merricks Sailing Trust

We are excited to announce that John Merricks Sailing Trust will be supporting OnBoard again this year. As the Official Charity Partner, the JMST will donate 50 (10 boats/boards per year) single-handed junior pathway boats and boards (Topper, Optimist, Laser 4.7, Bic Techno 293OD) to promising sailors, providing them with the opportunity to progress their skills and continue to participate in the sport.

The boats will be gifted to promising youngsters who display enthusiasm, drive, talent and commitment to the sport and who may not ordinarily have the opportunity or financial backing to achieve their goals. Each year, at least one young sailor will be selected from each of the nine BYS Regional Junior Championships giving them two years of exclusive use of their own boat donated by the Trust. After which the boats will be returned to the sailor’s original OnBoard club so other young OB sailors can continue to benefit in the future and progress into club and regional racing activities. The boat will be owned by the OnBoard club throughout the loan period.

To be considered:

1. Sailors must compete at the RYANI  Youth Championships in September (and state that they are from OnBoard).  
2. After the event complete an application form and return to RYA OnBoard Application forms will be available at the event and will also be available online shortly.
