Good afternoon all!
The next planned training day for SFTD Disability Awareness training will be on Sunday 8th March 2020, 1000-1600hrs, and it will take place at ARC Learning in Tromode and on the boat POM III in Douglas marina. (more details to follow nearer the day)
It is important that new members to our charity complete this training in order to provide safe and appropriate care for our enabled sailors, and it will enhance confidence in helping us to provide memorable and enjoyable sailing experiences for those who join us on POM III.
The training is also open to any experienced crew who would like to update their knowledge and skills as this day is quite different from the previous RYA-based course.
Some of you will be aware that we had to postpone the last training day in December due to lack of numbers, so please try to attend. Looking forward to hearing from you via email, sms, WhatsApp or even a call if you have any questions!

The Bag pack last Sunday at Shoprite in Ramsey was a roaring succes indeed on two fronts. With 13 volunteers! and both shoppers and packers all in good holiday spirits, goodwill was all around.
We are delighted to tell you that we collected a grand total of £663.10, £78.00 of which came from the sale of 14 bags (two sparkling sales whizz-kids discovered in May-Shui and Anthony!) We could have sold more, if we hadn't run out of bags at 1.00pm!
Sporting smart shirts with the SFTD logo and their names embroidered on, were Samantha and Rocky, who each sat astride a blue bucket, looking for all the world as if they were at the helm. They attracted a lot of attention. Thank you Sarah for dressing your bears so smartly. They are a credit to the charity. As indeed you ALL are!!
Thank you Margaret for getting Peter, myself, the lucre and all our equipment home safely on that long, wet and wild night!
And a big thank you to Shoprite for having us.
Saturday morning from 9.30 onwards we will have a cleaning session to make sure the inside of the boat looks as good as the outside does. All members are invited to come and give a hand.
We look forward to seeing you at the boat!
