We're happy to reveal that in 2013, through the ISA's five participation initiatives, ISA Clubs and Training Centres introduced a total of 10,879 people to the sport or raised awareness of the sport through onshore activities.

We hope that, working together with ISA clubs and centres next year, we can continue to grow the success of these initiatives and introduce even more people to sailing and convert them into lifelong members.
