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. 2021 Grants, Scholarships, and Medal recipients will recognized at The Ron Tough Yachting Foundation Awards Night on Thursday April 8th 2021 at South of Perth Yacht Club.
The legacy left by these ongoing contributions directly into the sport is immense and we firmly believe that it is a direct reason why
sailing in Western Australia is so successful. Our delighted congratulations again go to Matt Wearn (Laser) and Nia Jerwood & Monique de Vries (470) for representing Australia, Western Australia, and themselves so ably at the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games. We are proud of you!
