Junior Sailing News, Monday 3rd August

Very good news for the Junior Sailors at the Royal Lymington Yacht Club.

One of our new members is so impressed by the sailing that goes on for young people at the Club that she is funding for 3 years a high-level coach to oversee the junior coaching  programme starting in 2021.

Inger Fish who lived in Lymington in the 80’s and is moving back into the area is looking forward to being back on the water in Lymington.  You can expect to see Inger in her RIB watching the Juniors in action. 

Thank you Inger!
