Meeting Lord Coe
On Thursday, Lord Coe made a legacy visit to Weymouth and Portland, and an example of the 2012 Paralympic legacy, Chesil Sailability had the opportunity to meet him! A small group of us met him at the Dean and Reddyhoff Marina after he unveiled a plaque there. We had a quick chat with him, and then smiled for all the press and cameras. Chesil Sailability is a legacy from the Games in many ways - we are based at the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, the venue of the 2012 Paralympics, and so using all the world-class facilities installed there. We are also 'inspired by 2012', setting up in early 2013 after being inspired by the action we saw in Portland Harbour in the summer of 2012. As a legacy, we have only just started, and are looking forward to carrying it on for years to come!
