Jumbles Sailing Club Replacement Pontoon

(Greater Manchester)

We need a new floating pontoon to launch and tie up our boats. This would greatly help our Local and Civil Service members, the Lancashire Schools Sailing Association, Sea Scouts and disabled sailors.

Our goals:

  • We would use this Community Award to replace our aged pontoon which is being patched up, with a non rotting plastic one and custom walkway.
  • We would be able to have more boats on the water than at present and it would provide a more stable platform for all the users. Its modular design will adapt to making it safer for disabled users, and to a platform for team racing.
  • This would make our club more attractive to new members and enable us to promote competitive sailing amongst the youngsters by hosting regional RYA junior competitions.

How we will achieve our goals

The Community Award would enable us to afford to buy this new pontoon and have it installed.

Where the money will go

This would benefit our community which takes in the whole of the North West. We want more people enjoy our wonderful sport.
