I had a chance to visit Trimpley Sailing Club yesterday for a great day filled with great sailors and boats!
Trimpley Sailing Club is the home of Laser Radial sailor Alison Young, Team Great Britain’s Laser Radial Olympic sailor. The members and RYA held a Sail For Gold and Try Sailing Day to try and encourage members of the public to come down and try sailing for free. They also put on a RYA Coach to deliver some top level training to their Laser fleet sailors, holding master classes to provide top rigging and sail coaching!
LaserPerformance was invited along to not only show off Ali Young’s London 2012 boat, but also to showcase a new Ice Blue Laser to the members and to promote the Laser Fleet Deals.
Both the BBC TV and a local radio station were present to record the day’s proceedings and spread the word and buzz around the club on what turned out to be a gloriously sunny summers day.
Unfortunately the same cannot be said for the weather in Rio, with sailing cancelled for the day due to lack of wind…! The Medal Races will begin this afternoon and winners will be announced shortly. I’ll be watching- how about you?
