Aberdeen Airport Community Trust
The Airport Community Trust has agreed to support us with £1000 of funding towards helmets &
spray tops for young sailors to wear at Knockburn Loch. This is brilliant news as it will help support us to be able to
offer more sailing at Knockburn over a longer season. At present in the Spring we don't have enough kit to be able to
offer sailing at Knockburn in addition to Loch of Skene and Peterhead, so this will help to address this & give more opportunities
for young sailors, schools and youth groups from Central, Western & Southern Aberdeen s well as Aberdeen City. Thank
you to the Airport Community Trust.
Get out Get Active
Get Out Get Active has agreed
to help to fund our disability club for season 2018. This should make sailing more accessible to people with disabilities.
Thank you Get Out Get Active!

Council Capacity Grants
We have been successful in an application to this fund for mini optimists rigs to support younger children
to go sailing. We'll be able to purchase 6 new rigs to be used at Peterhead. These will be great for our starfish
sailors and for schools that want to bring younger pupils in activities weeks, as well as for smaller and younger children on
In addition Aberdeenshire Sports Council has agreed to support us with £200 towards two of these mini rigs for Knockburn
Loch for the same purpose.
Tescos Bags of Help have agreed to support Aberdeenshire Sailing Trust with a donation towards launching
trolleys and sails for wayfarers. We were voted into 3rd place in July and August in city stores, Westhill & Dyce
and will be receiving an award of £1000, to be spent on this much needed kit for wayfarers for Loch of Skene. Thanks to
Tesco's and all the shoppers who voted for us!
