Sailability

Frensham Pond Sailability offers people, who because of a long term illness or disability, require support to sail. There is a range of sailing available from therapeutic to competitive sailing all within a safe, caring and social environment. The site is easily accessible and all equipment and facilities needed for sailing are provided. So why not come and experience what many have described as 'freedom on the water'.

Sailability Activity Centre 

 

As reported in the November 2020 issue of the Commodore’s Newsletter, we were delighted to receive the GC’s support for Sailability’s proposed ‘Activity Centre’ project. Located on the grassed berthing area facing Jetties 6 - 8, the facility will comprise a fully accessible multi-functional training, welcome, communication, shelter and safety open area, together with two integrated accessible toilets.

 

Further information on the rationale for the project and the interior and exterior building design can be seen by clicking here. The documents shown are extracted from an imminent submission to Waverley Borough Council for outline planning approval.

The projected budget cost is £150k. £40k will come from existing Sailability designated reserves, £60 has already been raised  from a comprehensive fundraising campaign and £50K still to be raised..

Key stages in the project are:

2021;  Waverley Borough Council Landlord’s consent and outline planning approval, Granted November 2021. 

2/ 3rd qtr 2022; Complete fundraising campaign; complete detailed design, final planning approval, tender issue and contractor selection. Obtain final approval from the GC. Place order for works.

4th qtr 2022; Construction period, with completion by year end – ready for the 2023 sailing season!!

 

The above schedule is particularly sensitive to the timing of receipt of the Waverley Borough Council approvals and successful fundraising in a very challenging economic climate!

 

We are confident that this significant project will be viewed by members as a very positive development for the Club. It will build upon the mutually beneficial relationship established between the Sailability activity at Frensham and the Club as a whole over the past 20 years.

Members will be kept informed on progress via issues of the Commodore’s Newsletter.
