24 Hour OnBoard challenge

July 9, 2014

Last weekend, 5-6 July 2014, several members of the Grafham OnBoard Club took part in The Paxton Lakes 24 Hour Race, organised by Paxton Lakes Sailing Club. This year the event was supporting the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust.

Under the watchful eye of parents and Grafham Water Centre Instructors Gordon Baines and Ali Baines, sailors from Grafham OnBoard took it in turns to sail their team’s boat throughout the 24 hours, with the assistance of the adults for the nightshift! When not sailing, race duties such as time keeping, safety boat and galley, were carried out by team members.

An enjoyable event had by all, young people and adults alike.

Well done Grafham OnBoard!
