South Cerney Sailing Club is the new home to GBR British Blind Sailing and is now able to offer increased opportunities for visually impaired sailors to get involved with the club and take part in activities.

This exclusive sponsorship with Blind Sailing, and group commitment to the charity, will now offer even more access to boats and training facilities, as well as enabling the charity and its members access to additional sailing and racing which is more centrally located in the UK.

Blind Sailing Commodore Lucy Hodges commented: “This is a massive sponsorship to the charity. It may not be the physical passing of money, but this is something a whole lot more. As well as providing more opportunities for those already involved in the sport, it also opens a door for people to step through and get involved with sailing for the first time. This new sponsorship also takes the charity’s sail at home project one stage further. It will now also enable regular racing all year round, as well as access to sailing which is not just on our weekends.”
