Kangaroo Island Yacht Club is a small remote dinghy sailing club and is being greatly challenged, on a day to day basis, by the ongoing financial demands to maintain the Club and the boats. Being a low socio-economic community, we need to keep our member and hire fees to a minimum.
Every week we send 25 or more junior sailors and 20 or more adults out onto the water to sail - we want this to continue!
We really need to upgrade our clubhouse, but our priority is to maintain what we treasure. We have set up a general Club Development Fund to help cover the following areas:
to allow us to keep sailors on the water we have to pay an “On-Water” Insurance at approximately $4,000 every year
to put a much-needed sailing dinghy back on the water - Complete Rudder Box for a Pacer sailing dinghy - $1,100
to support the fundraising teas the club puts on - the kitchen requires 4 x good quality large gastronomic roasting pans - approx $200
Please make a tax deductible donation today! We thank you in advance for your support of these important day-to-day aspects of the club.
