The East Anglian Sailing Trust needs More sighted for the 12 – 15 May VI Cruise

We are just under 4 weeks away from our first VI cruise of the season and need more sighted crew. If you haven’t already signed up, please do consider doing so. we have 8 Vi’s and 8 yachts, 3 of which are new to EAST so we could do with more sighted support to encourage our new members.

The cruise starts on the evening of Friday evening the 12th May and finishes Monday lunchtime 15th May.

The plan is to sail to Burnham which should give everyone lots of sailing time.

Please contact Anne Tel: 07868226604 if you can join us.

About EAST

The East Anglian Sailing Trust is an established and successful charity offering a variety of sailing experiences for disabled and visually impaired adults and children.

The EAST Waterside Community Centre, at Suffolk Yacht Harbour, Levington, Ipswich was made possible by a successful bid for Lottery funding of £50,000. This was opened in April 2011 by Griff Rhys Jones and in 2012 was awarded the status of The Royal Yaching Association (Sailability) Centre of Excellence.

For Visually Impaired sailors, EAST currently provides two weekend cruises and a week long, live aboard sailing cruise where visually impaired sailors from all over the country regularly gain sailing experience with an enjoyable social programme.

EAST has a fleet of nine Squibs, two Sonars and two Yeoman keelboats plus two support boats which are used by disabled adults and children on a regular basis with volunteer support.

Saturday sailing opportunities specifically for disabled younger sailors and their carers are available from May to September.

In recent years the Trust has been able to offer its members additional benefits such as RYA courses leading to sailing and powerboat qualifications.
