GLORY (Gay and Lesbian Organisation for Racing and Yachting) exists to provide a voice for gays and lesbians in the sport of sailing and to encourage and assist individual sailors, clubs and teams.
The Gay and Lesbian Organisation for Racing and Yachting (GLORY) is a global organisation dedicated to promoting, co-ordinating, and supporting gay and lesbian sailing and racing around the world. GLORY represents teams and organisations world-wide with over 2000 members. We exist to assist individual sailors, clubs and teams in promoting the sport of sailing among lesbians and gays.
We do this through learn to sail programs, regatta co-ordination and coaching resources. The governing principals of GLORY are participation, inclusion and personal best.
We support a wide variety of sailing goals, from the highly competitive to the recreational.GLORY provides a sense of community for gay and lesbian sailors, no matter where they live or with whom they sail. Among our members are those with gay team-mates, straight team-mates and no team-mates (single-handed) and racing everything from ocean-going yachts to small dinghies.
We maintain a global network of sailors and clubs, and can help to provide contacts for away regattas, training camps and friendly sailing when away from home. We also endorse international LGBT regattas including the annual Stonewall Sails Regatta in New York, the EuroGay Cup in Europe and the Mardi Gras Regatta in Sydney.
After the rejection of Montreal, GLORY successfully lobbied for the inclusion of sailing in the bids for the 2006 Gay Games from both Los Angeles and Chicago (the bid winner), helped to find race officers and a venue for Chicago and lobbied successfully for the addition of sailing in the 2010 Games in Cologne.
