Seavets was formed in 1984 to promote windsurfing as an activity, convinced that an active life in middle age is most likely to lead to a healthier and so happier old age. Seavets has members from all over mainland Britain.

  • Russ TownsPromotes responsible and sociable windsurfing for the "not so young". Membership is open to those over 35 years old.
  • Organises racing and recreational events for members and encourages other organisers of windsurfing events to include categories and to award prizes for the "not so young".
  • Supports the registered charity the British Society for Research on Ageing.
  • Encourages members to become qualified through Royal Yachting Association approved courses.

From the beginning in 1983 the club was closely linked with the medical research charity Research Into Ageing (RiA) which was merged with Help the Aged in 2001 and later with Age UK. Between 2,000 and 3,000 has been raised by Seavets each year for the last few years, and about 80,000 has been donated to RiA since 1986.
Following a change in research policy by Age UK Seavets members decided to change our supported charity to the British Society for Research on Ageing, taking effect from the beginning of 2016.

Seavets is affiliated to the Royal Yachting Association.

Seavets Needs You: Situations Vacant
. Honorary Secretary, Newsletter Editor and two Committee Members.Since Steve Fletcher is stepping up to be our next Chairman, we are in need of a new Hon. Secretary. As one of the four officers of our club, the Secretary's post is important, but not onerous, comprising chiefly of producing the agenda and taking minutes at committee meetings (4 times a year), and at the AGM, and some small administrative duties. Please contact Steve for details.

Facebook: A closed (Seavets Members only) group has been created on Facebook to provide a forum for members to exchange views, information, photos, etc. Currently there are 58 members. If you want to join, you have to be registered on Facebook, then search for Seavets and ask to join. If you have a problem contact Derrick, Jean or Ruth.

If you are concerned about privace and security on Facebook check out their advice here. If you want to limit you activity and number of friends then remember that you can confine who asks to be your 'Friend' to friends of friends, so if you are choosy about who you allow to be your friends you should not be pestered by people you have never heard of. I guess that you could have no friends or only one friend, but haven't tried that myself - just say no to friend requests.

Please advise Derrick and/or Ruth of any website problems, errors or if you wish to contribute additional content.
