Australian Sailing releases the Annual Participation Report

In early 2022 Australian Sailing released their 10-year strategic plan, SAILING 2032. Twelve months later they have shared our Strategic Plan Status Report with clubs and classes, which reported on the progress made on the Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan Status Report was the first time Australian Sailing has publicly reported on how they were tracking against their stated strategic targets.

They say, “Grass-roots participation is the foundation for our future, and Australian Sailing is partnering with clubs to get more people on the water, in more ways, more often”

“Together we are committed to participation targets as outlined in the Strategic Plan (including 300,000 participants, 150,000 club members, 50% female participation and 25,000 course participants per annum) and today we are launching the Annual Participation Report”.

The report will set out how they are tracking towards their participation targets (the Strategic Plan Progress Report in the first half of each calendar year and the Participation Report in the second half of the year).

Some highlights of the report include:

  • 7% increase in Club membership
  • 14% annual growth in Discover Sailing Centre course enrolments
  • Growth in enrolments in all Discover Sailing courses (but more work to do to grow Windsurfing)
  • 42% female enrolments in Discover Sailing courses
  • 47% increase in SailPass memberships

You can view their first Participation Report here, which covers the period of July 1 2022 to June 30 2023.

Australian Sailing have said thanks everyone who has partnered with them to implement their Strategic Plan.
