Thank you all the team on Saturday's bag pack adventure! - Peter, the two Sarahs (Sarah Spencer with Rocky and Samantha and Sarah Cowell) Carole, Ann, Margaret and son James, Issie and Frank. And thank you for counting the lolly, Stuart.

Many thanks also goes to the Port Erin Shoprite store for their continuing support. Please extend our thanks to the staff at the store, always so friendly and helpful, making the time spent there a most pleasant experience for all.
It is with great sadness that we have learnt of the sudden death of Adam James Kelly. Adam was an enthusiastic member of Sailing for the Disabled and bass singer in the Isle of Man Choral Society.
Our thoughts are with his wife Margaret, his doughters Ruth and Miriam, family and friends.

3rd prize - Nr.65 Paul Atkinson £7.50
The 100 club is set up to help with funding needed to keep our Sailing for the Disabled boat afloat. A prize draw is held towards the end of each month. If there were 100 members then the prizes awarded each month would be: First prize £50, Second prize £30, Third prize £20 and £ 1,200 added to funds.
Please consider joining the 100 club and encourage your family, friends and sponsors to become members. Application forms can be downloaded from the website, or obtained from committee members. Some forms are also available on the boat.
Would you like to support your charity and become part of the 100 Club then simply download the application form here.
Thinking ahead, the committee would like to know what your thoughts are regarding our current boat Pride of Mann III and what you think could be improved when we would purchase a new boat. Please make some time to fill in this questionnaire as your opinion is very important to us.
Volunteers are needed to help with this Bag Pack in Shoprite, Peel on Saturday 18 May!
As well as raising funds to keep our fantastic yacht Pride of Mann III sailing, bag packs also help to raise awareness of the charity.
Please contact Adrienne on 833497 or mobile 466514 if you could possibly spare an hour or two to help with bag packing or talking to customers and give information about SFTD.
Many thanks to Shoprite for letting us use their store.
