Travel Grants

South of Perth Yacht Club is proud to support our sailors travelling interstate and overseas to compete in sailing events. Embarking on an International or Olympic sailing campaign can become an expensive mission, so if you are a member of the club and travelling to compete please read the Travel Grant Policy and lodge a Travel Grant Application Form for financial assistance if you meet the eligibility criteria.
