  11. Benefits to Mayo SC Members • Loading and Unloading will be much easier and safer • Our departure & arrival times will not be so dependant on tides • Water and power on the pontoon • Safe Access for older & younger sailors • Access for disabled/reduced mobility & wheelchair hoist • Longer sailing lives for all!! • Better impression & facility for visitors • Some basic rules (set down, load up for 10 mins, consideration for islanders), but common sense by all will allow it to work (Code of Practice signage)

Costings • Overall costings - €200,000 • Leader have agreed in principle to fund the project • Mayo County Council have agreed in principle to fund their part of the project (incl. foreshore licence, planning permission, structural design, tendering, etc.) • Rosmoney Pontoon Group have to come up with €25,000

  15. Long Term Management • The pontoon will be initially owned by Rosmoney Pontoon Group (this is the group that can access Leader Funding) • Ownership will be transferred to Mayo County Council after an agreed period • Mayo County Council will be responsible for the maintenance & upkeep of the pontoon – from the outset

  16. What do we need? • We are now in the funding stage (to actually put this pontoon “in the water”) • We are looking for donations from the group of people who will benefit most – Mayo Sailing Club! • We need to raise €10,000 from Mayo Sailing Club • We plan to have this pontoon operational for the start of the 2012 season!
