#SailingClubs - Sailing holiday firm Sunsail is ‘Funding the Future for Sailing Clubs’ in a new UK-wide competition for £5,000 in funding.

As British Marine reports, sailing and yachting clubs across Britain taking part must submit a business plan to detail what they would do with the funding — from new equipment to membership drives to youth sail training and more.

The club with the most innovative idea, as judged by a panel including Volvo Ocean Race veteran Dee Caffari, will win the investment to bring their plans to fruition — as well as a place on Sunsail’s stand at January’s London Boat Show.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
