Sports Council Funding

Waterford Harbour Sailing Club applied this year for funding again to the Sports Council,

The funding we received last year went to the development of the dressing rooms toilets and in the same time the entrance hall has been changed to make the clubhouse more welcoming. The building should be finished by Friday 3rd of March. We are looking forward to having our clubhouse back.  In The New Round of funding we have applied for funding for more Wayfarers the highly successful boats from last year and for some Ribs. some of our ribs are coming near to their end of life and we could do with some additions.  The application to the sports council are a laborious and precise process that requires a lot of time.

Our thanks to Derry O’Sullivan and Ronan Mulligan for taking on this task.
