Hempel UK Supports Sailing Youngsters!

07.09.2014

Hempel UK this week delivered 35 buoyancy aids to the Royal Lymington Yacht Club in support of the hugely popular weekly Junior Sailing scheme. This activity runs from April to September and sees children aged between 8- 18 learning to handle a boat safely in the Lymington River and progressing out on to The Solent.

Yacht sales manager Darren Gittins is pleased to be able to help support the Royal Lymington Yacht Club.

"Getting children of all ages and experience out on the water here is something to which Hempel are delighted to contribute. Lymington has a huge sailing community and the RLymYC has a great program for youngsters”

 Royal Lymington Yacht Club commented “We are delighted to receive this significant contribution from Hempel UK. This established sailing scheme is available to all local children for just £1 a week and it is support of this nature that allows us to maintain the program which is supported solely by its volunteers and generous donations”.
