Fundraising for Sailability

Fund Raising

Frensham Pond Sailability provides disabled people of all ages the opportunity to experience the thrill of sailing. Sailing ranges from therapeutic cruising in the relaxing surroundings of Frensham Pond to competitive racing in Paralympic class mini-keelboats.

It costs about £30,000 each year to run Sailability.  This includes major capital items such as replacing or adding to our fleet of 27 boats, as well as on-going operating costs such as insurance, boat maintenance and the use of Frensham Pond Sailing Club facilities.

Less than 20% of our income comes from sailing fees paid by our sailor members, which are kept as low as possible to minimise any economic barriers to participation. The balance has to come from on-going donations and a range of fundraising activities.

We would be delighted if you could help us in any way.  If you would like to find out more, please contact Brian Grimwood who will be happy to talk to you about the available options tel : (01252) 850089 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Sponsorship

Over the years, Frensham Pond Sailability has been fortunate to enjoy the support of local charities, companies and organisations. This has enabled us to buy capital items such as boats, vital equipment such as life jackets and contribute towards annual maintenance costs. We have recently been able to start a youth development programme to help young sailors follow a constructive step by step approach to sailing appropriate to their level. This has proved to be very popular.

If you would like to find out more about sponsoring a capital item, equipment or activity and how this could work with you or your organisation then please contact our Fund Raising Manager Brian Grimwood This email address is being protected from spambots.
