Setting Sail with Swansea
We are hoping to raise money to best support our club after the inevitable financial struggles which have been caused by the pandemic. With your support, we can fix up our boats and ensure that as many as possible are in 'shipshape' which would be amazing. The raised funds will enable us to get more students and more time out on the water.
Who are We?
We are a friendly and welcoming club that caters for a range of sailors, from complete beginners to seasoned pros. Currently, we own 10 fireflies and sail at Tata Steel Sailing Club on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
As students, it's great that we can get out and enjoy the sport. As a club, we like to make it as affordable as we can, ensuring anyone can give it a go. However, with the ongoing pandemic we haven't been able to reach our "normal" fundraising targets and as a result, we can't fix our boats. Currently, not all of the boats are usable and so the limited number of times that we can go sailing, we can only use a few boats at a time, thus limiting the number of people who can go out on the water. With the money we hope to raise, we can start fixing the boats and get a few more out on the water so as many students as possible can get out and enjoy this amazing sport.
If you help us by donating then there could be some Swansea sailing merch heading your way or a chance to chuck our very own commodore into the reservoir!
