Blind Sailing In Lockdown.

May 25, 2020

What have we been up too…..

 

 

 

 

 

Our last weekend on the water was in March just before the Monday lockdown, but was great to end on a high.

 

But we acted fast as a committee and put our training and fun get togethers online, thanks to Zoom.  Wednesday was fun and laughter with different thymes and Sunday was special guest and learning.  We are truely thankful to our amazing line up so far.  

 

Wednesday’s have been a great way to get to know each other more, training and racing we can be so busy, and the buzz of sailing can dictate the chats, but with time ashore we have more time to find out more about each other.  

 

Some of the thymes have been tell us your favourite sailing story, I know sailing, but it is interesting what you find out!! Build a boat out of anything in your property.  Now this created family fun and mess, Lucy even shared her design with her work colleagues to see how they would judge.  

 

The evening was full of laughter and it was great to have Joff McGill RYA Sailability Manager judge the entries.  third place went to James Wheeldon and Ellie Davies with ‘No Crap Here’ a loo roll with a great origami boat on the side.   Second place went to Will Morris, now who has carbon fibber just laying around, well Will does!!! with Blind Sailing receiving a message at nearly midnight the day before from Liz, Will’s mum saying “I blame Blind Sailing for the mess in my kitchen” we wondered what we would see, but I think we may have found Will’s career designing model boats.  Will built his boat with the base being a plastic bottle and carbon fibber, two wheels and sleek black and white design certainly looked the part and gave it the name of Dilligaf.  But first place went to Charlie Griffiths with Blue Bear, Charlie and her mum had great fun all day making a boat that Charlie could fit in and pretend to sail.  We are not sure how effective an ironing board is as a rudder but congratulations to Charlie for picking up first prize.  Big thanks to Inspiration In You for donating amazon vouchers for 1st and 2nd place and thank you to Joff for great judging and making the night special.
