Our BBC Look East Appearance with Sports Presenter Tom Williams

BBC LOOK EAST - As part of our Mental Health Awareness Week 2021 initiative, we went sailing with Chelmsford Radio Yacht Club (CRYC) as a backdrop to talk about  SAILING WELLNESS and the positive benefits of getting afloat and 'blue health'. 

Blackwater Sailing Clubs, Commodore, Dr Nigel Butler, gave the sailors some extra time but the BBC were well on schedual and they created this excellent story with a piece about para-Olympic sailor Hannah Stodel to boot. Even the weather cooperated. 

This is the first time we have seem Radio Controlled Model Yacht Racing on the box. The Class are the IOM Class (International One Meter).
