You can help in many ways
As a registered charity, Cowes Sailability Club relies on help from volunteers, donations, fund raising events and sponsorship to cover its annual fuel, training and maintenance costs. So, whether you can spare us your time, money, expertise or equipment, why not get in touch? We will really appreciate whatever support you can provide, large or small.
Become a Volunteer
Being a volunteer with Cowes Sailability Club is a rewarding and social experience. Those with sailing expertise can help to crew our boats, while other volunteers provide really valuable assistance on shore, greeting disabled people and their carers, maintaining equipment and helping at fund raising events. When you see the smiles of our members as they learn to helm and hear the laughter of wheelchair-bound children who are experiencing being on the water for the first time, you will know, without doubt, that you are making a worthwhile contribution.
Sponsor us or organise a fundraising event
Without the generous support of local groups, island businesses and national organisations, Cowes Sailability Club just wouldn’t be able to survive. If you are looking for a corporate sponsorship opportunity or simply planning a community cake sale, we would love to hear from you. Our cheeky, animated club mascot, Horatio Bear, is often available to make guest appearances at events and we are happy to support joint publicity to help you publicise your commitment to our work.
