Sport NI ‘Project Reboot’ – Get Donaghadee Sailing again!

Our Crowdfunding campaign is live!

Let’s get our community back out enjoying ‘our Big Blue gym’, out on or in the water with Sailing, Sup, and Snorkelling & Diving @DSC!

Through Covid 19 our club has lost a significant number of skilled & experienced volunteers and trained instructors and members during the pandemic.

In order to build back better we  want to develop a ‘blue gym’ at Donaghadee and implement a RAFT of water based activities to get the community back in,  on and under the water.

We want to develop our new RYA On Board accredited  Bright Night Sailing programme as well as offering new and old members the chance to try other  new water based activities such as stand up paddle boarding and scuba diving.

 Your support is key as we need to upgrade our training fleet and equipment, and put in place a intensive training program to replace those skills lost. We are going to focus on helping  our up and coming juniors and adult volunteer instructors to help them   gain an accredited RYA, BSAC and BSUPA qualifications to continue to offer the professional level of service and training to our local community, and improve the teaching experience .

We feel by developing a suite of new water based activities will help us attract back new members and volunteers which are key to our club.

This program would allow DSC to get our ‘New’ RYA OnBoard accredited / Bright Night Sailing scheme up and running properly, and to be able to offer sailing and a diverse range of water activities once again for all abilities.
