The sport’s high performance leadership has been strong over a number of years, which was reflected in the outstanding 2012 Olympic campaign and sustained performances through 2013. The Paralympic sailing team performed well at the world championships in Ireland. Key issues for Yachting Australia (YA) in the coming years include ensuring the successful return of priority athletes from the America’s Cup campaigns and building further depth in world-class coaching.

YA has adopted several new policies and principles to ensure it is working towards meeting the mandatory governance principles. It has been agreed that YA will complete a review of its current structure, in conjunction with state associations, before moving to a company limited by guarantee during 2014.

YA achieved growth in active members and program participants in 2013. Implementing strategies to grow revenue sources through commercial opportunities and increased sponsorship of national programs is a priority for YA in 2014.
