Sailing Associations and Organisations

Sailing associations and national or international organisations of sailors are great sources of information about sailing, yachting and boating in your local area or in an international context. The following collection of links will point you towards websites of associations that might be of use to you. There's another page dedicated to owner associations that target enthusiasts for particular types of sailboats.

Many of them know a great deal about international regulations, races and current affairs in the world of regattas and competitive sailing. Others will offer you access to a large pool of experienced members, which many beginners will find helpful. If you know of any links you would like to see included, please don't hesitate to drop me a line!
