Funding The Future is Sunsail's way of giving back to sailing's grassroots. First launched in 2016 to give UK sailing and yacht clubs the opportunity to pitch for £5,000 to support their club.

From improving club facilities and equipment to attracting youth and sailability participation, this initiative is open to all clubs across the UK and our panel of Sunsail experts are looking forward to this year's entries.

We love our sport and think everyone who wants to have a go should get the chance. Sailing and yacht clubs make sailing accessible for millions of people, but often lack the funding they need. Funding the Future is now open for applicants to win up to £5000, so spread the word and make sure your entry is sent before Sunday 6 January 2019.

Win up to £5,000 to invest in your club

  • First prize - £5,000

    The winning club will be awarded £5,000 to invest in your winning pitch. You will also get the chance to meet Ian Walker MBE, who will come to your clubhouse for a live Q&A subject to availability.

  • Runners-up prizes - £2,000

    There will be two runners-up prizes of £2,000 to invest in their club.

  • University clubs prize - £1,000

    A separate prize will be issued to one University Sailing Club. The most deserving university club will win £1,000 to invest.

  • All applicants - 15% off Sunsail sailing holidays

    If you are 18 years old or more and member of a sailing or yacht club in the United Kingdom, you can benefit from 15% off your Sunsail sailing holiday booking. All you need to do is to speak to one of our holiday planners, quote 'SSSYC' and name your sailing or yacht club where you are a member. You must have proof of your sailing club membership when booking your holiday.

Terms and conditions apply.
