As we are 100% run by volunteers, all money raised goes on the activities, premises and boats. We are funded by a mixture of sailing fees and donations. We keep the sailing fees as low as we can to make ourselves accessible to as many people as possible and rely on donations to make up the rest.
The sailing fees are £5 per visit for all sailors. This amount covers our basic running costs (rent, fuel, insurance etc) but not the wear and tear on our equipment and facilities or for the purchase of new equipment. We have an experienced volunteer maintenance team who do most of the work but materials need to be paid for.
All donations are gratefully received, either a one-off donation or a regular monthly amount in cash or in kind.
