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.
Program of Merit
The objective of the Program of Merit is to nurture the development of top-level sailors, coaches and officials from the club.
The purpose of this funding is to support high-performance projects with people who have the commitment, proven results and the potential to succeed on the world stage.
The Program of Merit is implemented by the On Water Group and overseen by the Training and Development Committee on behalf of the Management Committee of the Club.
Programs of Merit are reviewed annually in September. Applications need to be submitted to the Sailing Development Manager, Mikael Lundh by 1st September each year. The Training and Development Committee will advise the outcome of the application by the end of October.
