Salterns 24 hour Sail

Salterns Sailing Club
CiN 2012
Salterns Sailing Club in Lymington is once again supporting the BBC Children in Need Appeal by running their annual 24 hour Sail-a-thon on Friday 15th November for its young members.
 
The club, in its 15th year of Children in Need fundraising, hopes to smash a £100,000 target.
 
This year the club is running a series of on-going events, which started with their Children in Need Parent & Child Round the Islands Time Trials in September and a cake sale on Lymington High Street which raised an amazing £1160 - brings their tally to a very impressive £93,000 over the last 14 years.
 
The climax is the annual 24 hour Sail-a-thon running from 16h30 on Friday November 15th to 16h29 on Saturday 16th, where the children will keep a boat afloat for 24 hours. This year the fundraising is even more focused as the child who raises the most Sponsorship will win a priceless private lesson with Olympic gold medalist and America’s Cup hero - Sir Ben Ainslie CBE!
 
On Saturday 16th as the Sail-A-Thon continues, the club is organising a series of fun activities, kicking off with a presentation by the RNLI. There will also be a funky nail bar, throw a welly, guess The Pudsey competition, a temporary tattoo parlour, and a tombola – these will all encourage the strong turnout that is anticipated this year from the 200 families that make up the club’s membership.
 
Everyone is invited to visit the club for tea and homemade Pudsey cakes during the two-day event.
 
There will be a silent auction with lots including a ride on a Severn Class Lifeboat, a Gite in Cognac, a children’s “Survival” party, a Mercedes Day out for Four, a signed Americas Cup shirt signed by Sir Ben Ainslie CBE, a family day out on a yacht - to name just a few!Our Salterns donation to CiN charity sets us apart as a club for children and run by children giving tangible support to much less fortunate children.
