The Gordon Leisure Projects Trust
 
We're delighted to announce 1826.89 of funding support towards new mainsails and launching trolleys for the Loch of Skene Wayfarers from the Gordon Leisure Projects Trust. This is excellent news! The wayfarers are the backbone of everything we do at Skene with regards to adult courses & disability groups so this new much needed kit will be very much appreciated by many, many people. We plan to have this kit in place for the start of the Skene season next year. Thank you to the trustees of the Gordon Leisure Projects Trust!

The Jo Walters Trust
 
We are delighted to announce that the Jo Walters Trust has offered us 2270 of funding towards a rescue boat and trolley to be used at Knockburn Loch.   This will allow us to increase our opportunities at Knockburn, as we will be able to be there for a much longer season and not be reliant on moving a rescue boat across from Loch of Skene once activities have finished up there.   This is brilliant news for anyone keen to start sailing & for local schools and youth groups in Aberdeen, and Southern, Central and Western Aberdeenshire.   We are absolutely delighted!   Thank you to The Jo Walters Trust!

About Us
Aberdeen Airport Community Trust
 
The Airport Community Trust has agreed to support us with 1000 of funding towards helmets & spray tops for young sailors to wear at Knockburn Loch.   This is brilliant news as it will help support us to be able to offer more sailing at Knockburn over a longer season.   At present in the Spring we don't have enough kit to be able to offer sailing at Knockburn in addition to Loch of Skene and Peterhead, so this will help to address this & give more opportunities for young sailors, schools and youth groups from Central, Western & Southern Aberdeen s well as Aberdeen City.   Thank you to the Airport Community Trust.

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.   We were voted into 3rd place in July and August in city stores, Westhill & Dyce and will be receiving an award of 1000, to be spent on this much needed kit for wayfarers for Loch of Skene.   Thanks to Tesco's and all the shoppers who voted for us!
