I Am Team GB Day
27th August 2016 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
Ullswater Yacht Club is taking part in ‘the nation’s biggest sports day’ on Saturday, August 27, and has been chosen to host the I Am Team GB Flagship ITV/Border regional event.
The club’s Ullswater Sailing School is running free sailing taster sessions from 10am-3pm as well as other I am Team GB watersports activities.
As part of the day, RYA Sailability, which supports people with disability to take up the sport, have arranged for two fully accessible dinghies and a mobile hoist to be available for use. This will enable anybody, regardless of their ability, an opportunity to sail, showing that sailing is a totally inclusive sport. Staff from RYA Sailability will be present to support the event and provide information and advice on the day.
The taster sessions are completely free and there will be lots of I am Team GB goodies on offer. The club will provide buoyancy aids and helmets – all you need is warm clothing, waterproofs and shoes you don’t mind getting wet. The sessions are for all, from eight to 80+, or younger with parents or guardians, and family groups are welcome.
It is essential to pre-book for your free taster session on August 27. Contact 07900 855 812, email email@example.com or visit www.ullswateryachtclub.org Participants must also register with the national I Am Team GB website:
Ullswater Yacht Club (CA10 2NA) is on the North-east shore of Ullswater about three miles from Pooley Bridge on Howtown Road.
