As quantitative data should be noted that the Association was born with over 80% of the nautical facilities Galicia , managing over 3,000 berths with about 20,000 members and 45,000 users. We highlight the efforts and work of the Nautical clubs, associations , non-profit , in the promotion and practice of water sports from an early age , at a time when there were no other initiatives to respond to this demand by the lack of profitability this activity. In this work more than 200 jobs were created , both direct and indirect .

The defense and promotion of the Galician yacht clubs was one of the incentives that motivated the creation of the Association. The fact that these entities base their activity on development of Boating and other water sports and the economic aspect is not a primary objective , make their merits are not sufficiently recognized when only economic criteria are applied to evaluate a work . However this work from the base, is what largely led the great development and demand for boating facilities .

To promote and maintain the services and port infrastructure nautical Galicia, and promote nautical tourism quality , allowing complement existing tourism and promote the stable development of the coastal Galician economy is another objective of ASNAUGA , help boost sport of sailing off the coast of Galicia and the marine environment of our community aware of its uniqueness, the unique characteristics for nautical sports activities with our estuaries and coasts in general community that already has a number of blue flags awarded to sailing facilities compared to their competitors in other communities or Foreign Countries. and propose the improvement of facilities to provide better response services to nautical tourists who visit us, with imaginative solutions that allow us to position ourselves to great deals in the sector worldwide.

Noteworthy is the work of the Marine historically able to maintain the infrastructure over time as living entities in the sports and social field as true agents of economic development and integration in our society.
