Apply for a Grant

We want to change thousands of young peoples’ lives through sailing. To do this, we offer financial grants and subsidies to organisations and individuals to enable greater numbers of people to benefit from sailing and watersports.

Please see below for the types of grants and subsidies that we are currently offering.

Are you eligible?

Individual Subsidies

We provide the challenges of a sailing environment to promote health and wellbeing and to develop personal skills that will improve a young people’s ability to succeed in life and work. We recognise sailing as a sport and as a recreation is not always accessible to all, owing to lack of finance, a physical or learning disability, mental health or social barriers. The Foundation helps to break down those barriers by offering financial and practical support. more
