Sponsorships @ bexhill sailing club

Welcome to Bexhill Sailing Club!
Bexhill Sailing Club has been established since 1947 and is very much a modern, inclusive and forward looking sailing club, located on the East Sussex Coast between Eastbourne and Hastings.
Keith Musto, the British sailor, opened the original clubhouse in June 1965 after representing our country at the Tokyo Olympics.
The Sailing Club has an extensive calendar of sailing events taking place between March and November every year. It is a very active, friendly club and welcomes new members with all varieties of experience and ability.
The aims of the Club are:

  • To promote and encourage good seamanship and knowledge of the sea
  • To facilitate community participation in the sport of sailing
  • To provide social and other facilities for Members as may be from time to time determined

Each year the club provides a programme of tuition for adults and young people who want to learn to sail and for those wishing to improve their sailing ability. The club has a number of experienced and
knowledgeable instructors who teach sailing theory and practice to recognised RYA levels. RYA Level 1 is an introduction to the sport of sailing and covers all beginners need to know to get afloat under supervision. RYA Level 2 sets out the foundations of sailing for beginners and by the end of the course participants should be competent light wind sailors.
There is a well-established Cadet Section which meet on Thursday evenings and some weekends
depending on the tides from early April until September. There is no minimum age however sailing from a shingle beach is physically challenging so our Cadets are usually at least 10 years old.
The emphasis for Cadets is learning to sail in a safe and fun environment. The sessions include many
elements of the RYA Youth Training Scheme which enables all Cadets to progress through the programme.
Our club relies on volunteering and without them we wouldn’t be able to offer as much as we do. Their work provides the Sailing Club with a free resource to help us achieve our goals and encourages civic responsibility. We also know members like to support the club – a community resource that they use themselves or that benefit people they care about.

Where we can we attend events throughout the year to promote the club to local residents and promote the health and physical benefits of sailing.

Sponsorship
As a key component to the sustainability of Bexhill Sailing Club, several generous and rewarding
sponsorship packages have been constructed and are outlined below. The annual packages offer a
convenient means for businesses and individuals to align and be recognised for their contribution to the Club and support of our community driven mission.
