On Saturday 13th February we held a pre-season training event at Shoreham for our volunteers. Plans for the forthcoming season were discussed, and training requirements identified for the RYA “Team Sailability” scheme. The scheme gives volunteers the opportunity to gain additional skills and progress to Bronze, Silver or Gold levels.
Our Sailability Annual General Meeting followed at 3pm and this included a full report from our Chairman, John Mactear, on 2015 Sailing activities.
John was presented with the “Commodores Award”, by Dave Ramus (S.Y.C.), in recognition of his services to Sussex Sailability during the 2015 season.
The Mid Sussex Triathlon Club sponsored Sussex Sailability last season, and kindly donated a cheque for £1213.38, for which we are extremely grateful.
This was an enjoyable afternoon and an opportunity to catch up with friends prior to the new season.
