LYME Regis Sea School Trust was delighted to receive a donation of £500 from Lyme Regis Regatta & Carnival Committee.
The donation has been used to purchase some new buoyancy aids and mast head floats for the multi handed dinghies. Using the floats means that it is much safer and easier to upright the dinghy it if capsizes.
The volunteer-run sea school teaches young and mature students to sail, with about 240 pupils a year.
Josh Bolton & Fraser Earle, senior instructors at the sea school, were delighted to meet with Alan Vian and Angela Main from the Regatta & Carnival Committee, during their recent week of fundraising events on the seafront, to enable them to say thank you in person.
Josh commented: “Lyme Regis Sea School’s aim is to make sail as accessible to as many people as possible. To do that safely we need our equipment in good working and reliable order.
“We wish to extend our thanks to the Regatta and Carnival Committee for helping us to achieve this.
