26 million for the RYA for sailing upto Tokyo

6.5 million per year

650,000 for each of the 10 events

10 athletes or coaches per event allocated 65,000 EACH to cover wages, equipment, travel

Plus sponsorship etc

I love sailing but the reality is 0.1% of the population know anything about the sport. This is an eye watering amount of money

I think it's too much

By the time they have also covered admin costs, paying coaches, buying ribs, dinghies, travel, it is doubtful the sailors get much to live on.
