A multi purpose training facility for the Royal Yachting Association at Osprey Quay has been handed over
A £4 million multi purpose facility for the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) at Osprey Quay on Portland in Dorset has been formally handed over. RYA Portland House will be the hub of performance sailing in the run up to and during the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
This is the first phase of the Sutton Harbour Group’s leisure and tourism development called Castle Court near Portland Castle, and the latest development to take shape at Osprey Quay where an investment of £40 million will transform the former Royal Navy Air Station.
Mike Wigley, RYA Treasurer and chairman of the Portland Working Party, said: “We are delighted with the new RYA Portland House facility which we believe will be instrumental in providing a performance advantage for our potential Olympic sailors in the run up to and during the 2012 Olympic Games.
Osprey Quay is located at the gateway to the Isle of Portland, adjacent to the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy – the venue for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
