The Ron Tough Foundation was established in 1980, with Syd Corser as the inaugural chairman. Its mission is to encourage excellence in sailing in Western Australia with an emphasis on emerging talented youth. Over $1,000,000 in grants made to the WA sailing community and WA’s most prestigious awards to recognise outstanding achievements and contributions to sailing is how we honour the legacy of Ron Tough, Syd Corser, and the future of sailing in Western Australia.
2020 Grants to support and promote sailing in Western Australia were awarded at the WA Sailing Awards Presentation Night at the Nedlands Yacht Club. The Ron Tough Yachting Foundation has made grants in excess of $1,000,000 in support of the WA sailing community. Congratulations to all the worthy 2020 Grants, Scholarships, and Medal recipients recognized at The Ron Tough Yachting Foundation Awards Night on Thursday 12th March 2020 at Nedlands Yacht Club.
The Ron Tough Yachting Foundation Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals are awarded annually to recognize those West Australians that have made an outstanding contribution to our community and/or have achieved at the pinnacle of outstanding competitive performance.
