The GBA Benevolent Fund - est. 1995

Historically if an accident (no matter how serious) occured to a member while taking part in a boating activity in the Bailiwick, the Association would assist that member, or their dependants. With the advent of more people having private medical cover and/or insurance cover, the Fund has now evolved into a conduit for the collection of donations if a serious incident were to happen in or adjacent to the Bailiwick waters.

The amount of discount will vary according to the type of item being purchased and the Marine Trader you are dealing with. The aims of the Benevolent Fund
