The Ron Tough Yachting Foundation was established in 1980. The Board is delighted that the Awards Presentation night on May 16 2019 had the Ron Tough Yachting Foundation reach the milestone of having made in excess of $1,000,000 in grants in support of the WA sailing community.
At an elite level of yachting performance and international competition, the resources needed are always going to be very expensive, whichever fleet you sail in. The Ron Tough Yachting Foundation is aware of this and was set up by established sailors (with a vision and passion to promote excellence in yachting in the future) specifically to assist other up-and-coming talented sailors, particularly youth, to enable them to progress further.
At present in 2019, there have been 942 worthy recipients from the yachting fraternity who have received financial benefit from RTYF to motivate and embolden them to pursue their dream and encourage and support them to take one more step towards achieving further yachting success.
The Ron Tough Yachting Foundation has committed to the goal of awarding $100,000 in grants in 2020 and hopes to increase this amount to $150,000 per annum by 2022.
