Team story

[p]Hi, thanks to all our generous sponsors, not only did we raise over £2000, we managed to win the race!!!!![/p][p][b]Round the Island Race – Help Float the Boat[/b][/p][p][span=color: #888888;] A[/span][b] [/b] team of sailors is heading to the Isle of Wight this September to take part in a special race for charity.[/p][p]South Yorkshire Police Offshore Sailing Section has challenged all 43 Police Forces in England & Wales to a race around the Isle of Wight on September 10, 2013, in aid of [b]Macmillan Cancer Support[/b][b].[/b]  [lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt][/p][p]The race will start at 7am from Yarmouth and finishes at 5pm at Cowes. Each team must raise a minimum of £1,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.[/p][p] “Most of the crew have raced together previously in various combinations with some taking part in the “official ‘Round the Island Race’ in 2011,” explained skipper John Walsh. “However Laura Florence is the complete novice and apparently gets seasick in a deep bath! She has offered to come as currently supporting a close friend who is very ill at present.[/p][p] “We hope the Force will be with us in more ways than one and will support this huge fundraising effort. The race is very much weather dependant and should take between 8 and 12 hours to complete.”[/p]

Well done! Being the sort of sailor who would prefer to be moored near a small fish taverna in the Ionian rather than tacking and gybing round the IOW in Autumn squalls I take my hat off to you all! And an immensely important charity too!
