The Royal Yachting Association (RYA) has launched a new LGBTQIA+ network. The network aims to make equality and inclusion for those that identify as LGBTQIA+ a reality in the sport of sailing, reaching not just the RYA membership, but also stretching across to RYA affiliates and the wider boating community.

RYA says the group is open to anyone who identifies as part of the LGBTQIA+ community, or anybody who is an ally, who is interested in the sport and actively supports the RYA’s ambition for a diverse and welcoming culture.

The news comes as organisations across the UK mark the country’s annual LGBT+ History Month throughout February.
