Yes it’s that time again, we think of sun and the sea and of course the biggest event in the Visually Impaired sailing calendar – Blind Week!
After last years excellent event in Cornwall which saw the plucky VISA-GB crew onboard the good ship Hope plough the seas from the Solent to Falmouth, we’re back in the Solent for this year’s festival sailing hosted by the Royal Lymington Yacht Club.
Our plan is to have three boats in this years event, one chartered and two privately owned so the VISA-GB pontoon parties will be the hottest, but not necessarily the driest, ticket in town.
What are the dates I hear you ask – diaries ready – Blind Week starts on Sunday the 7th to Saturday 13th July 2019. But for those in the know the VISA-GB event will start on the Friday, a chance to polish our oilskins, oil our winches and iron the canvas before the rest of the fleet has woken up.
You know what to do next!!
