Summer Social

This evening was our summer social - an opportunity to celebrate the milestones that we have reached so far in 2014, thank our volunteers as part of National Volunteer Week, and catch up with some of our sailing role models who are down for Sail for Gold regatta. Philip Hall, sailor and Trustee, said a few words, to welcome our Paralympic guests and then handed over to Tom and Rob Harper to formally open our portacabin - ably assisted by some very cute assistants (Tom's twin daughters!).   For National Volunteers Week, Dick Foyle, another of our sailors, said how brilliant our volunteers are - the banter, understanding, skills and kindness of them all. All the sailors had signed thank you cards that we gave to all the volunteers. The best quote was from Dick who said "My wife is starting to get suspicious of the big grin on my face!"   It was such a privilege to be joined by so many British Sonar sailors during their Sail for Gold regatta! Chillaxing with our sailing role models and heros was fantastic - and is exactly the kind of integration we want with the Paralympic, racing and wider sailing community! We are wishing them all the best for the rest of the Sail for Gold regatta, and following all their journeys to Rio 2016!
