The numbers have come up for Weymouth Sailing Club.
The National Lottery's awarded them £48,000.
Weymouth Sailing Club is amongst 324 local sports projects to secure its share of £17 million of National lottery funding from Sport England's Inspired Facilities funds.
The money will go towards creating a training room at the club to offer practical sessions to sailors.
Commodore Kathy Claydon said: "Since the Olympics when Weymouth Sailing Club acted as hosts to team GB and their families, using the long shed, we realised that, with money, this underused part of the club could be utilised as a multifunctional area for training, boat maintenance, meetings and a social area, not just for Weymouth Sailing Club but for the local community.
I must highlight the support we received from Weymouth Rowing Club, Yacht Clubs of Weymouth and Weymouth Lifeboat amongst others in attaining this grant and thank them."
