Help us to raise money to sustain Nomad Sailing through C-19. Donations in return for gifts and vouchers for training or sailing experiences

by Jim Barden in Gosport, England, United Kingdom

We're still collecting donations

On the 28th February 2021 we'd raised £28,640 with 117 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

New stretch target

Raising more than our target will enable us to secure moorings for future seasons and maybe even look towards part funding another training vessel.


Nomad Sailing is a small but highly regarded sailing school which operate in the Solent on the South coast of the UK.  We offer a full range of sail training and sailing experiences.

Life-long and enthusiastic sailors, my sister Lou and I started Nomad Sailing in 2008 and have been building its reputation and a loyal customer base ever since.  Along with a small but committed group of free-lance instructors, we have delivered a product which always places the customer/student at the centre of what we do. People seem to love what we do.. :-)

Some testimonials:

"Best of the best, outstanding tuition, expert teachers, down to earth people, no hesitation in recommending this brother and sister duo who have clearly found their calling and practice what they preach... Richard J"

Despite high customer demand, the restrictions due to C-19 have made it virtually impossible to continue regular training over the last year.  We believe in the business we have created and the strength of our market in the future, but just need to keep on top of things and kick start the new season when it eventually begins.  In order to re-fund the business, we're asking for small donations in return for merchandise - such as t-shirts and fleeces, and larger donations in return for vouchers for Sailing Courses and Sailing Experiences with Nomad Sailing.

The money we raise by meeting our target will not only fund the delivery of our contributors gifts and vouchers but also to keep us afloat and push forward with the marketing and future-proofing of the business.

Many thanks for taking an interest in our business and we hope to see you out on the water soon.
