Aberdeenshire Council Capacity Grants
 
We have been successful in an application to this fund for mini optimists rigs to support younger children to go sailing.   We'll be able to purchase 6 new rigs to be used at Peterhead.   These will be great for our starfish sailors and for schools that want to bring younger pupils in activities weeks, as well as for smaller and younger children on courses.
 
In addition Aberdeenshire Sports Council has agreed to support us with 200 towards two of these mini rigs for Knockburn Loch for the same purpose.
 
Tescos Bags of Help have agreed to support Aberdeenshire Sailing Trust with a donation towards launching trolleys and sails for wayfarers.   You can vote for us instore in Aberdeen, Westhill and Dyce in July and August.   The winning project gets 4000, 2nd project gets 2000 and 3rd placed project gets 1000.   Please support us with your blue tokens!   Thank you
