- Committee

 

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.

  • Promotes 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 Research Into Ageing.
  • Encourages members to become qualified through Royal Yachting Association approved courses.

From the beginning the club has been closely linked with the medical research charity Research Into Ageing Fund, which is now the research division of Age UK. Between £2,000 and 3,000 has been raised by Seavets each year for the last few years, and more than 78,000 has been raised since 1986. Seavets is affiliated to the Royal Yachting Association.
