The first in a new Annual Sailing Event in support of the RNLI.
Tom, one of the enthusiastic Youth Squad Sailors here at P.S.C. has
organised this terrific new event as part of his Duke of Edinburgh Award.
This is an ‘All Comer Open Sailing Event’ for anyone with a sailing dinghy or Cat
to visit the club as a guest and race for the Trophy.
Tom has raised funds and bought a very smart Cup as a trophy to be raced for Annually,
plus the usual token prices for second & third.
Cost for entry £10 double handers £5 single handers.
All the entry fees are to be given to the R.N.L.I.

RNLI Challenge Trophy
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) is a charity that saves lives at sea around the coasts of Great Britain Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, as well as on selected inland waterways.
The RNLI was founded on 4 March 1824 as the National Institution for the Preservation of Life from Shipwreck, adopting the name National Lifeboat Institution in 1854, and then receiving Royal Patronage from King George IV of England and Ireland shortly after. It now operates as an international service to the peoples of the UK and Ireland and has official charity status in each nation.
As part of my duke of Edinburgh award (volunteering section) I aim to raise money for the RNLI by organising a sponsored open race at Penmaemawr sailing club I wish this to be an annual event.
The proceeds will go to the north Wales RNLI fund.
The winner of the race will receive the RNLI Challenge Trophy This will be yours to keep for the year. Then at the next years races the former winner will pass the trophy along to the next winner. And so on.
