You may be aware that sailing clubs in UK civilian life are rather an expensive affair with membership fees in the hundreds of pounds, on top of that you invariably have to own your own boat (minimum cost £4,000).
At ESSC all you need supply is yourself, enthusiasm and come winter some basic Sailing Clothing to keep you warm and dry.
How can we possibly offer you such a wonderful deal at such reasonable prices?
Principally we benefit from grants from the Nuffield Trust, but to get these we have to be able to provide a percentage of the money we require. We achieve this by being a self-help organisation, i.e. we save money by doing as many building and boat repairs as we possibly can ourselves. Additionally all of our Instructors, Officers of the Day and Safety Crews, are unpaid and give their time voluntarily.
So if you join us it would be good to think you would be willing to lend a hand. A small price to ask for access to the wonderful facilities we can offer you at Episkopi Services Sailing Club…
