WYA National Regional Squad Selection Policy 2013-14
includes Youth Academy
The Welsh Yachting Association (WYA) squad system has been in place for over 15 years based at the National Watersports Centre; Plas Menai, National Events Centre; Pwllheli and more recently in South Wales; Cardiff Bay Yacht Club.
The National Squad program has a proud history with current and ex World Champions having been through (or still are) part of the program. Within that Wales contributes 8 athletes to the Olympic Squad, and with 5 sailors in both the Great Britain Optimist and Topper Squads the next Olympic sailors on TV in 2016 or later could well be you.
