Welcome to the website of the Australian Team Sailing Association (ATSA). - JUNE 2015

During the twenty-odd years until 2013, team sailing in Australia was controlled and supported by Yachting Australia. The support provided by YA was limited to a small amount of direct funding for each of the two national championships (schools and open), some limited funding for teams representing Australia at international events, and administrative support for the YA team racing committee which provided advice to YA about all matters relating to team racing after its formation in 2003.

At its 2013 mid-year federal assembly, a decision was made by Yachting Australia to discontinue any direct support of team sailing after 30 June 2014. This was a disappointing outcome to those members of the Australian sailing community who understood the importance of team racing in attracting new participants to the sport and who have witnessed the growth potential within schools and universities in recent times.

For those of us passionate about our sport and excited by the success of events such as the Australian Schools Team Racing Championship, it was clear that we could not stand by and watch team sailing disappear from the Australian sailing landscape.

We are in the process of incorporating the association and making some final decisions on the structure, financing and governance of the new body. As we go through this process of re-organisation, please continue to support the already-scheduled events and take the opportunity to make suggestions on how best ATSA can grow team sailing in the future. Many of those involved in the previous YA team racing committee are involved in the convening of the new association. If you have an opinion about the direction team sailing should be taking in your state and within Australia, please feel free to contact a member of the steering group.
