The commodore of LYME Regis sailing club Jerry Rook took delivery of the new boat. It was a new safety boat bought with the help of a grant. The Highfield safety boat was supplied by Rupert Perry and was handed over on 6th August to Jerry Rook along with the club trainers and officers. Rook placed an application for the grant and on arrival expressed his joy. He said that the prime objective of buying the safety boat through a Sport England grant was for expansion of the sailing club.
Rook is fully determined to expand the club in order to organize training programs for the youth. The club has quite a few young and competent sailors who would be able to take part in the national level. The management of the sailing club is putting an extra effort to encourage young sailors to accomplish their dreams. (more…)
