RYA responds to UK Sport funding announcement for Sailing    
Wed, 19 Dec 2012

RYA Performance Director John Derbyshire provides his reaction to today’s UK Sport funding announcement for Sailing for 2013-2017.

'Sailing’s Olympic award of £24,515,072, as announced by UK Sport today, is broadly welcomed and will enable us to start implementing our plans for the Rio cycle, off the back of having successfully delivered another five medals at the Olympic Games this summer to remain one of Great Britain’s most consistently high-performing Olympic sports.

'Especially pleasing is the substantial increase in funding to our Paralympic programme for this cycle. After coming home from Beijing empty-handed for the third successive Games, the whole team worked tremendously hard to put that right for London, resulting in a gold and a bronze from two out of the three competing classes. We’re delighted that these efforts have been recognised by UK Sport, and will allow us to build and develop our talent pathway to hopefully continue that success towards Rio and beyond.

'We’re grateful to UK Sport for their continued confidence in the RYA’s World Class Programme, and look forward to the clarity and opportunity that these awards now provide us with in our planning for Rio 2016 and 2020.'
