This work will be undertaken at both ends of the participation spectrum, from grassroots experiences right through to international competitions.

While commenting on this partnership, Dr. Malav Shroff, ASAF President, said that "ASAF was delighted to collaborate with RS Sailing, and that this partnership would augur well for promoting and development of sailing events in the Asian Region."

Dan Jaspers, International Business Development at RS Sailing, commented "The objectives of ASAF, in terms of growing the sport of sailing in Asia, align with RS Sailing's own business strategy. Having experienced unprecedented growth in this region over the last few years, we see the synergy between what ASAF is doing and what RS Sailing can do to help ASAF fulfil its goals on behalf of its members as an exciting opportunity to affect change via a development-oriented working relationship between both organisations. We are looking forward to working closely with ASAF and all its members in Asia over the coming years."
