Stranraer Water Sports Association (SWSA) was set up in January 2016 by the members of local water sports clubs in a bid to promote water sports within the Loch Ryan area. SWSA is a charity with SCIO status , has a board of trustees and employs a part time project manager.It  creates a central point of contact for all water sport enthusiasts within the area. Since its conception SWSA have, working in partnership with a number of other organisations, established an active  St Ayles Coastal Rowing Club , has formed an alliance  with the long established Loch Ryan sailing club who recently relocated to Stranraer specifically to benefit from the secure storage, slipway, boathouse, repair & maintenance and other facilities and associated economies of scale developed by SWSA.
