Another in our series of our sailors and their stories... Tim Scarisbrick suffered a severe stroke in December 2010 and was devastated that he would no longer be able to sail his beloved 505 again. He was finding it hard to come to terms with not sailing as it had been part of his life since the age of three! His saviour came in the form of Chesil Sailability. He was delighted they could offer him the chance to sail again. He too sailed during the summer. He was given the privilege of sailing in an open meeting at Bristol. His comment was ‘WOW Thank you Chesil Sailibilty and all the volunteers’. It’s not just been the waters of Portland either – Tim went to the Bristol Access Class Association Traveler Trophy event in August. Although after a day of very light winds in the vortex that is Bristol Docks, Tim was pleased to see Portland Harbour again!
