The RYA accounts present an interesting contrast . The RYA basically transfers its UK Sports grants straight through to the Olympic effort and at first glance it does not seem so much more than we spent on our Olympic team this year. The larger difference is that the RYA spends around 5m on the grass roots , which is not waht I expected to find.
FWIW, the RYA is on a much sounder financial footing than either USS or World sailing, and it is not due to the lottery as I had previously been led to believe.
UK Sports itself receives funding from a mixture of lottery and taxes and its grants, which are related to medal performance, have to be spent on Olympic support. The bodies that provides grants for grassroots sports are Sport England and its sister national organisations and they also part-fund the RYA. Sport England etc are themselves part-funded through the lottery.
Inevitably not everyone agrees with everything the RYA does but I don't hear much of the general all-round moaning that emanates from AUS and USA. My personal experience of the RYA, for coaching, race officer training and for technical support for a class I used to help run, has invariably been positive.
