Geroge Avison and Herbie Harmer set sail thanks to Eric Twiname Trust

Staunton wins generous Eric Twiname Trust grant

Eric Twiname Trust supports youth sailing at SHSC

SHSC was delighted to win a generous grant from the Eric Twiname Trust towards two brand-new RS Tera dinghies. The Trust was set up to perpetuate Eric’s memory and concentrates on supporting youth sailing, especially racing. The Teras are the perfect boats for this, enabling our younger sailors to start racing in a competitive dinghy before they grow large enough to sail Toppers.

Test sail last Sunday

The award was won back in March but due to the on-going pandemic the club has only recently been able to collect the two boats. Having spent a little time commissioning them, and carefully putting on the Eric Twiname stickers, this Sunday the boats were launched for the first time. The wind was a little light, but our two test sailors (Herbie Harmer and George Avison) had a great day out on the water.

We’re now looking forward to seeing these boats out racing with the club and are very grateful to the Eric Twiname Trust for helping the club to buy these two excellent dinghies.
