Our work depends on the generosity of supporters. We need your help to create opportunities for students who would never otherwise get afloat.

Your generous donations pay for everything from travel and accommodation at sailing events, to coaching and kit.

We squeeze incredible value out of every penny our donors give. And if you’re a UK tax payer, we can reclaim an additional 25% of Gift Aid on every donation.


A one off donation, or just £10 a month makes a real difference. 

Use the ‘Donate’ buttons, which take you to ‘Just Giving’. This keeps our costs to a minimum. Please set up a monthly donation, if at all possible, and use the easy Gift Aid option.

Join the "600 Club"

Donate just £50 per month.

The 600 Club makes a crucial contribution to our work, helping keep the GCA Sailing Programme afloat.

It makes all the difference that yours donations are regular, so we can plan with confidence for the year ahead. 

Sign up now to donate and join the club!

We would love to recognise your involvement by sending you a special 600 Club thank you, so will get in touch very soon.
