Selling shirts to sailors....and their clubs.
Following on from the GAS initiative to raise funds for the Rutland Challenge for the John Merricks Tiger Trophy, it was a small step to offer the same facilities to general sailing club members.
By selling t shirts, sweatshirts and polo shirts bearing the famous Tiger Trophy logo and giving all the profits to youth sailing and the John Merricks Sailing Trust, it is hoped to compensate the shortfall that the charity has suffered due to the covid pandemic.
As part of this, a customisation facility was added to allow purchasers to add their own sailing club burgee and date of participation in the Tiger.....or anything else.
It was a small step to extend this with a direct appeal to sailing club members to create their own club shirts without the Tiger logo, again allowing full customisation.
All we ask is that the profit from first sale goes to the JMST. After that, the profit from any subsequent order is shared either as a royalty to club funds or a discount to members.
We can, of course, supply bulk orders at great cost savings but this offer is for one off supply for the individual. Just pop a link on the club site to facilitate access.
