The VIS Sailing program operates in partnership with Australian Sailing’s high performance program to provide key support in the performance pathway program through to the Australian Sailing Squad & Australian Sailing Team. The VIS Sailing program work closely with our program partners, state network coaches, national program coaches & staff, along with performance services staff to provide high quality support to nationally categorised athletes within the high performance pathway.

VIS athletes compete across the majority of Olympic boat classes with a focus on providing a strong domestic training base, while exposing athletes to high quality national and international training and competition opportunities. The program has been successful in increasing representation on national squads, with the ultimate aim to have our athletes competing at the 2020 Olympic Games and ISAF World Championship events
