PDP to be held in Japan

The World Sailing PDP helps Member National Authorities (MNAs) by assisting in the development of national Para World Sailing and training programmes. As well as supporting the training of Para World Sailors and their coaches through a number of dedicated performance clinics, and if required, helping to arrange classification opportunities for sailors. The PDP also focusses on enabling the participating nations to grow sustainable training programs.
