  2019-2022 US Sailing Strategic Plan... 

US Sailing staff and leadership (with the help of many SAYRA volunteers) worked over the last 12+ months to establish a Strategic Plan. This document will help guide our budget process, program innovation and streamline the overall organization. Please take a moment and review. US Sailing would like to thank everyone who contributed. We will be discussing more of the action items behind this plan during the regional symposium on January 25th. HERE
