The first meeting of Visa-gb’s marketing team took place at Lofty’s house on 21/11/2017. Jeff Bungay, Keith ‘Lofty’ Sims, Tim Sandford and new boy Andrew Lane all gathered to discuss and plan our strategy for 2018.
Andrew was soon inducted into the ways of Visa as Lofty produced an excellent lunch featuring the Visa classic of fish finger sandwichs, much heated discussion over the merits of tomato sauce versus mayonnaise warmed us up for an eventful afternoon on more serious matters.
Fund raising, membership, events that include the Southampton boat show along with our hoped for participation in Blind week made for a lively debate.
With these guys pushing forward new ideas 2018 promises to be a really good year and will see the Visually Impaired Sailing Association attract new members, take part in new events and become the leading provider of offshore sailing for its members.
They’ll be more news to come after the Trustees meeting in December, so sign up for regular updates!
