Who are we?

A warm and welcoming community known for its enthusiastic embrace of boating and fishing passions.

Tawe Boating Club: Navigating Swansea bay and Beyond

Welcome to Tawe Boating Club, where the thrill of navigating Swansea bay and venturing into the open waters of the Bristol Channel takes center stage. Our club, nestled alongside Swansea Dry Docks, offers a unique blend coastal boating experiences, catering to individuals from all walks of life, from novices to seasoned mariners seeking new challenges.


Why are we crowdfunding?

At Tawe Boating Club, we're on a mission to transform our outdated clubhouse into a vibrant hub for our community. With your support, we aim to achieve the following:

Revitalise Clubhouse Facilities: Our current clubhouse is in desperate need of an upgrade. We're working tirelessly to replace it with a modern facility equipped with essential amenities like kitchen and toilet facilities. Your contribution will help us create a welcoming space for everyone to enjoy.

Overcome Infrastructure Challenges: Lack of running water and proper fencing pose significant hurdles for us. By raising funds, we'll tackle these challenges head-on, ensuring that our clubhouse is not only functional but also safe for all members and visitors.

Engage the Community: We believe in the power of community spirit! Your involvement in our crowdfunding campaign will not only help us reach our financial goal but also strengthen the bonds within our community. Together, we can make a lasting impact and create a space that everyone can be proud of.

Join us in our journey to build a brighter future for Tawe Boating Club. Every donation, no matter how small, brings us one step closer to a new modern clubhouse. Together, let's make it happen!


How we’ll spend the money raised

All the money raised will go towards improving the facilities at Tawe boating club.

This includes:

Having civil work carried out to create running water and drainage to the site.

Replacing the current clubhouse with a more modern and up to date one that doesn't leak every time it rains! That also has toilet and kitchen facilities.

Making the clubhouse and boat yard accessible to people with disabilities. 

Replacing the perimeter fencing and replacing the access gates for suitable ones with disabled access.




Community impact

Tawe Boating club offers a budget solution to boat mooring and launch facilities. That is so important as the community we serve, and the clubs location is one of the most deprived parts of south Wales. If the club did not exist then most of our members would have nowhere else to go, as demand far exceeds supply of mooring small vessels in the area.

A lot of our members are of retirement age, and if it weren't for the club and it's facilities, they would not be able to do the sport of sea fishing that they enjoy so much.  "Fishing in beautiful natural surroundings has been proven to increase relaxation and happiness, especially as focusing on your catch distracts from stressful everyday life. Due to these therapeutic benefits, fishing can treat depression, anxiety, PTSD and ADHD. " Quote from Sea Angling

We also server the Veteran community and are now on the path to encouraging the next generation of Anglers. We also have resident British Sub Aqua Club members who use the facilities to train the next generation of sub aqua divers in fields such as boat handling and chartwork.
