AYRS was founded in and is dedicated to finding out how to make yachting better faster, more fun, whatever you want it to be. From our members have come the modern sailing multihulls, self-steering gear, sailboards, a flock of successful sailing hydrofoils and the World Speed Sailing Record system. Membership is open to anyone interested in the improvement of yachts and equipment through research and development. It has two governing documents like most UK companies. These can be amended by a two-thirds majority vote at a General Meeting.
