Disability sailing, Monday 21 July

In conjunction with City of York Council, we are running an introductory sailing session for people with an ambulant disability. It is scheduled for Monday 21 July, 10.30 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. Can you help run the session? Sailors, safety-boat drivers, ground crew … all needed! If you can spare a few hours that day, please contact Steve Hogg: stevehogg@hotmail.com.

It happened. It was great fun. The weather (for a change) behaved perfectly. Look out for a full report in the next YRISC newsletter.
