Grafham Water Sailability Sponsored Endurance Sail

On Saturday 14 July at Grafham Water in Cambridgeshire, Grafham Water Sailability (GWS) will be holding a ten hour sponsored endurance sail from nine in the morning to seven at night.

It is hoped that as many of our members as possible (both disabled and able bodied volunteer members) will be able to participate.

Sailors will sail for as long or short a time as they are able with crew changes taking place as required. To accommodate crew changeovers, we will be running at least two boats during the day, to ensure at least one boat is on the water throughout the ten hours. Participants won't just be the sailors, but will include the all important shore support teams and crews to provide safety cover.

So that anyone with a disability, who wants to enjoy being on the water, can join GWS, membership fees are kept deliberately low. This means that we rely on charitable donations to cover the vast majority of our average £9,000 to £10,000 annual running, repair and replacement costs. It is hoped that through this event we can raise a significant proportion of this money through our own efforts.

It was certainly an endurance sail in the heat and light winds but a great practice for finding the wind. Enjoyable day.
