Congratulations to Paul Phillips - Champion of Champions
The prestigious RYA Sailability Multiclass Regatta took place on 5th and 6th August at Rutland Water. More than 50 boats and 74 sailors took part in Britain’s biggest disabled sailing event, including a team of 7 from Frensham Pond Sailability. The whole club would like to congratulate Paul, who was crowned Champion of Champions.
Paul, who has competed in this event since 2011 said “The racing was quite close and exciting at times and I really didn’t expect to win. It was a really enjoyable event”. There was a whole variety of weather conditions and before the start of the Pursuit Race there was a big squall, with strong winds. Luckily the rain eased off and conditions started to improve.
Paul has been sailing with Frensham Pond Sailability for more than 10 years, and before that, he sailed round the world. He is closely involved with the running of the club as treasurer and sails almost every week.
There were also other successes for the team from Frensham with two other sailors in the top 5 in the pursuit race, Megan Pascoe and Kate Hedley and Paul, Megan and Lindsay Burns winning their respective class races.
Over 75% of our operating costs and 100% of our capital costs are met from donations and on-going fund-raising events. If you would like to help by making a small donation to Frensham Pond Sailability, please click on
