Good to see an increase in funding for sailing and para sailing.

Shame most of it gets spent on a dubious support team.

24.5m does seem rather a lot for a "minority" Olympic event. Rowing, Cycling, and Athletics get more. Every other sport gets less. Probably for the medals on offer the sailing ones are the most expensive.
Like some other things - sailing is more enjoyable when you do it with someone else

I am sure that the RYA look good as they provide super training for the lucky few and improved facilities for clubs but how much do they do to put ordinary Joe's in boats?

Well hopefully none of this which is about elite sport...but it therefore frees more of our subs etc to do more with...how anyone can think an injection of 24.5M is a bad thing for the sport is beyond me...and this money is only about the medals!
