GLORY represents 21 gay and lesbian sailing organisations with over 1500 members. We also maintain a list of individual members in other
locations worldwide and have regional representatives who provide a contact point for areas where no gay sailing organisation exists.

We have also compiled a list of Gay Yacht Charters and Cruises. Click here to update or add a link.

Gay MultiSports Event OrganisationsThanks to substantial lobbying from GLORY and helping the hosts to stage the event by finding and negotiating with host sailing clubs, boat rental suppliers, sail and equipment suppliers and sponsors, the Gay Games and EuroGames have both included Sailing in their list of sports.
