We are a community based Sailing Club at the west end of Bembridge Harbour on the Isle of Wight. We have around 800 members and a thriving sailing group of sailors ranging in age from 8 to 80 with a large cadet section. This enables us to bring all sailors on or into the sport by being an RYA Training Centre. There are also a large number of Social Members with activities happening throughout the year so the facilities can be used by the whole community whether sailors or not.
The Project is quite simple. We need to upgrade our present changing room facilities. Improve the ventilation and replace the sanitary fixings and arrangements in both the Ladies and Gents. The Club house itself was built in 1950 and the changing room extension was added in, in the 70’s. Since then it has had a coat or two of paint but has now run out of time.
The intention is to gut and refurbish both the changing rooms to bring them up to standard removing the old sanitary fixings, the worn out tiles and flooring to bring it up to a standard for the 21st century so that it will last another 30 years.
This will be done within the existing building and will assist where we can by using club volunteers. We have received a Grant from sport England and money from club funds and would like your help to cover the short fall.
