Our Plan for a New Club House

Yeadon Sailing Club has a long tradition of providing excellent racing, training and social sailing opportunities to all members of the community from the Yorkshire Region. Our ability to continue offering these opportunities is at risk, our club house is beyond repair and desperately in need of replacement.

Our vision is to raise enough funds to build a modest but modern and accessible facility to inspire current and future generations of aspiring sailors from the local community, upholding a tradition of grassroots sailing established since 1928 in the heart of Yeadon.

By doing this we will be able to continue to promote the benefits of sailing for mental and physical health and wellbeing across all generations providing enjoyment to sailors and their families, supporters and spectators alike.

Help us lay the foundations for the future of sailing in Yorkshire.

Notes from our Funding Meeting

YSC Funding team members held a meeting with representatives from Green Leeds and Leeds County Council regarding funding advice for supporting our build project.

They are extremely knowledgeable in this area having overseen a number of funding applications. They gave Catherine, Bob and myself some excellent advice on how to proceed and information to seek, and we thank her for her time.

Their key message was that in order to have success with applications, YSC needs to be in a strong position to demonstrate community involvement. YSC has been at the heart of the community for a very long time, and is very much part of the community supporting the Tarn Users Forum working closely with other groups to ensure the high standards of maintenance and access to the park and the water.

We will be looking at how we can strengthen our community message, if readers of this blog can suggest any suitable clubs or groups that we can speak to, over and above our current engagement then please email the project team at project@yeadonsailingclub.co.uk

Once again, thank you for giving up their time to meet with us.
