RYA OnBoard

Onboard logoScammonden Water Sailing Club has been awarded the Royal Yachting Association’s OnBoard status.

OnBoard is a grass roots programme which seeks to make sailing easier to get into for young people. Nationally it has introduced over 500,000 children to sailing in the UK. Our Saturday Club is aligned with the OnBoard brand.

In February 2015 the RYA visited SWSC to officially award us with a plaque. Although the weather was still a little chilly, a number of our Saturday Club sailors were at the club for the presentation and all were looking forward to the new sailing season. Cat Ferguson, OnBoard Operations Officer, commented: “It’s great to welcome Scammonden Water Sailing Club to the OnBoard programme. Sailing is a fantastic sport no matter your age, background or ability. We look forward to working with them and the local community to get as many people as possible enjoying our great sport.”


The fun has continued every year since 2015 and intended restarting on 18th April 2020 following the winter break. However, Covid-19 has put that on hold alas, so keep an eye on this page for updates. We hope to be back as soon as is practical and safe.
