BUSA & Development

The BUSA "development" agenda:
  • to encourage and support all students of higher education in the UK to participate in sailing, whether recreationally or as a competitive sport.
  • to encourage and support student sailors and their Athletic/Sports Unions in establishing and developing their own sailing clubs, with a view to encouraging and facilitating student participation in the sport
