On Saturday 28th October our Chairman Dieter Jaenicke and Marine Training Manager Darryl Cooper joined the Royal Cinque Ports Yacht Club (RCPYC) in welcoming members of the GBR Blind Sailing team to the club’s annual “Pickle Night”. The night is a traditional naval gathering for Petty Officers and Ratings, following the more formal Trafalgar day, celebrating the return of HMS Pickle from the battle of Trafalgar carrying the tidings that the British had triumphed but at the cost of many sailors including Lord Nelson.

Lucy Hodges MBE, Commodore for GBR Blind Sailing, praised the RCPYC for the support they have shown Catherine Westbrook in her journey to the world championship. Of the Maritime Skills Academy sponsoring the kit for the whole team and supporting Catherine for the upcoming 12 months of her sailing career Lucy said that she felt the charity had reached a new level and that the corporate sponsorship would lead to many bigger and better things.

Ben Hazeldine, sighted tactician for GBR Blind Sailing, said that his work with the charity has changed his sailing at Olympic level by improving the way that he communicates with his crew. He added that blind sailing has reached exactly the same competitive level as any fully able sailing he has experienced.

Dieter, Darryl, Lucy and Ben along with their other guests thoroughly enjoyed the night at the yacht club including meeting Mal Nicholson, owner and captain of the replica schooner HMS Pickle.
