SES Sailing Club Benefit from Sport England Grant
The popular Stamford Endowed Schools Sailing Club has benefitted from the addition of two new Wanderer dinghies thanks to a £10k grant from Sport England. The two new Wanderers’ will be a welcome addition to the existing fleet of 6 x RS Fevas and 3 x 420s.
Before the addition of the Wanderers, the SES Sailing Club’s fleet was oriented towards younger sailors and experienced older students who race the 420 at a club level. The investment from Sport England has enabled sixth form sailors of all abilities to get involved. Sixth form students have a sports afternoon every Tuesday and they now have the option of sailing at Rutland Water, which will be fantastic during the summer months. In addition, the SES Sailing Club now offers RYA Level 2 and 3 courses to parents so that they can use the boats with their families at the weekends.
