EAST member wins Gold Medal

At the IFDS Blind Sailing World & International Championships 2013, held last month just outside Yokohama, Japan, the British teams won gold medals in both B1 and B2 classes. The helms were Sharon Glennan and Lucy Hodges, both regular competitors in the Blind National Championships hosted by EAST over the last three years - and Lucy is herself an EAST member.

Well done to all the teams.

EAST's chairman, Tim Thomas, commented "I thought the standard of racing last year was fantastic - now we know that all thier hard training work has paid off!"
