Sailfree News

After a slow April we are back on track for a new bumper year.

Our Tuesday Autism group is now proving to be our busiest day of the week.

In recognition of his contribution to Sailability Norman was asked to join the selection panel for our new North of England Development Officer.

On Wednesday June 21st the new RYA Sailability Manager visited us accompanied by the new Regional Development Officer. They were keen to find our views about what constitutes a Centre of Excellence as they would like other clubs to reach this standard.

We also explained how we were able to grow our scale of operation through the establishment of partners who received the training needed to be self sufficient and reduce the demands on us finding and training additional volunteers.

BESA our long time supporters of Sailfree will be visited on 11th July to present a cheque following their Fund Raising Ball. This covers the majority of our running costs and repairs during the year and we thank them for their continuing support.

We are running our own Sailfree Regatta on Thursday 13th July. All of our Sailfree sailors are welcome to join us to compete or cheer on those who do. Entry is FREE and there will be prizes.

John and Norman
