Royal Gourock Yacht Club
AMOUNT AWARDED: £895
Royal Gourock Yacht Club's mission is to promote the sport and pastime of sailing, create a progressive and welcoming atmosphere within the Club, extend the membership within the community and reach out to all those in the Gourock and surrounding areas who would like to sail or further develop their sailing abilities. Sail training and general seamanship skills are provided through an interactive simulated E-programme which will enable the Club to introduce young people to the joys of sailing from a safe and warm environment mainly during the winter months. This professionally designed programme will also enable those with more experience to hone their skills and further develop their interest in sailing, safety afloat and seamanship.
Why were they chosen?
Through CalMac's support the activities will provide a safe and interesting method of learning how to sail, and about safety on the water, during the off season. RGYC hope this will attract more young people to take part in what is a healthy outdoor sport and could even lead some to a future career.
