  • Sailing Royal Naval Sailing Association

    The Rioyal Naval Sailing Association operates across the UK and aims to get Service men and women of all sailing abilities actively engaged in our sport. We passionately believe sailing is an ideal vehicle for improving personal skills and military efficiency. We organise our sailing into the core disciplines of yachting (both racing and cruising), dinghy sailing and windsurfing and have a fantastic active sailing and social programme.

    * This is not an RNA SIG but it is supported by the RNA and our members are encouraged to join the RNSA.

    The RN Alpine Ski and Snowboard Championships is the Royal Navy’s annual sporting event for downhill Alpine Skiing and Snowboarding, open to all Royal Navy personnel, Maritime Reserves and Veterans as well as their friends and family.

    For the 11th year, the championships will return to Tignes Le Lac from the 8th– 22nd January 2022. Across the course of the two weeks, attendees of all standards – including complete beginners, will participate in a range of lessons and training sessions before partaking in a suitable competition, relevant to their standard.

    This year the Royal Naval Association will be taking a non-competitive team and you are invited. If you’d like to join the party, please email Carl at rnawintersportsig@gmail.com with your name, branch and membership number and he will be in touch with further details.

    The championships welcomes all levels, from absolute beginner to the Royal Navy representative teams.
