§ Mr. Banks
The Government give support for individual sports mainly through the English and UK Sports Councils. The British Federation of Sand and Land Yacht Clubs, the sport's governing body, has been awarded a grant of £19,000 by the UK and English Sports Councils. This runs to September 1997. From September, the funding and development of the sport will rest with the UK Sports Council. Sand yachting has so far been awarded £47,660 from the lottery sports fund.
