Improving access to the water for all club members

Last year, we asked our members how club facilities could be improved. After a significant number of responses, there was a strong indication that many members would like to see improvements to the Sailing Club Quay to provide better utility and accessibility to the water, for everyone from Junior sailors to experienced older members.

MAKING UP THE LEEWAY

Straightforward improvement proposals have already seen an undertaking. Refurbishing toilets, sprucing changing facilities, improving wayfinding, and fitting a high-pressure washer on-site to regularly clean slipways are amongst the sleeve-rolling tasks we’ve tackled.

It is with this in mind that sights set on a more significant investment. The General Committee concluded a jetty would deliver the greatest benefits, providing a safer, more accessible boating experience across the board.

Facilities would also improve for Junior Sailing Training – an important part of the Club’s activities and future. Last year, despite covid restrictions, JST provided sailing tuition to over 260 youngsters – some going on to compete at regional and national level.

We’re confident a jetty will benefit members of all age groups and interests. Improved usefulness of the quay, plus an enticing means of accessing the water, will give opportunity to significantly enhance the Club’s sailing and water-based activities for generations to come.
