24 Hour Fun Sailing Event
Sunday, 10 June 2018 08:26


 We would like to enlist as much support as we can from GYC members (old and young) and their friends, family and colleagues for a fun 24hr sailing event on the model yacht pond - it takes place on Friday 15th June at 5pm until Saturday 16th June at 5pm.

This is a mammoth challenge organised by Eloise Tanguy the junior Guernsey Yacht Club Captain and her young Committee to raise funds for the Guernsey Sailing Trust for their 30th anniversary and help raise funds for the Guernsey Yacht Club juniors to purchase a boat to lend to budding  sailors to try sailing on the sea
In hindsight this was too big a task for such a small and young committee especially as some of them are busy now doing A and As level exams.   Whilst they have done a lot of the organisation - sorted all permissions from harbours, police and the St. Peter Port Douzaine as well as sorting a bbq, medals for everyone taking part, tshirts to buy, sleeping arrangement, floodlights (and the list goes on), they have not done enough to promote the event and find people to take part.
If you have already approached her to take a time slot - then  many thanks.   If not then please consider joining in.  We can allocate a boat to your group for the whole 24 hours or have a few of you together sailing in a 1/2 or 1hr time slot during the period.  
All we would ask is that you raise some sponsorship/donations.  We want to try and ensure everyone taking part pays a minimum of £5
Please can you get in touch with Eloise on  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it   if you feel you can help

I would really value your support.

Many thanks
