Practical Boat Owner - - Regional News -

Southwold Sail­ing Club has been awarded £10,000 from the Big Lot­tery Fund to buy six boats and train five in­struc­tors in a bid to in­spire peo­ple to em­brace the sport. Robin Watkins, the com­modore of Southwold Sail­ing Club said his aim was to en­cour­age peo­ple to aban­don a ‘Game Boy’ cul­ture of mo­bile phones and video games. He said: ‘Sail­ing can be chal­leng­ing at times, but if you pick the right day then you can have a re­ally good ex­pe­ri­ence. It is about get­ting peo­ple off their back­sides. They will get wet and tired, but they will come away with a good ex­pe­ri­ence.’
