Sailing performance for 2016-2017

And again another year with Pride of Mann III has passed! I think it is safe to say we all have become accustomed to her now. She is still a big girl but with the new Training team working hard to get all new crew up to speed we are able to guarantee the safety of all on board. A very important but also time consuming part of the 'business'

We had however a slow start to our sailing season but this is what you would expect over the winter months. The summer has despite some very windy days, much improved sailing numbers on last year. With overall fewer cancellations we completed 175 sails enabling 65 members (once or more) with disabilities to sail with us. In addition we offered 150 members of community groups the opportunity to enjoy sailing with us.

With the support of our volunteers, made up of 12 Skippers and Mates, 6 Female and 13 Male crew/carers, we strive for another year of sailing fun with as many of our members as we can. So have a look at the Sailing programme and book yourself a sail whilst the weather is still kind to us!
