The Australian Sail Training Association was formed and incorporated on 20th July, 1996 to create and/or promote opportunities for sail training and adventure at sea under sail. While open to all participants, these opportunities are targeted towards Australia's young people and the benefits they gain through training and adventure at sea under sail based on the principles of teamwork, safety, personal endeavour, self discipline and resourcefulness.
