Policy Updates

CSSC National Travel Policy

CSSC have introduced a new National Travel Policy, details of which can be found on their web site via the link below. For CSSA this means that, subject to a cap of £45.60, participants in the Inter-Departmental Offshore Regatta and the Dinghy Championships will be able to claim half their travel costs. These events fall within the ‘Category 2 – Open Championships’ element of CSSC’s scheme, as set out in the NTP Guidance Notes. In limited circumstances – likely if at all to apply only to the Dinghy Championships – some accommodation costs may also be reimbursed.

The scheme, which is restricted to CSSC members, is independent of CSSA. Claims are to be made to the CSSC Regional Office in whose area the claimant either lives or works. Claimants can establish their Region by contacting CSSC’s Membership section on 01494 888444. Claim Forms are Region-specific and include the address to which the claim should be sent. They are available on each Regional Office website to which there are links from the main CSSC link above.

The policy may be constrained by Regional and HQ budgets.
