Rye Harbour Sailing Club (RHSC) are holding a FUNdraising Fiesta to raise money to build a new shower block with facilities that will be accessible for all tomorrow (Saturday July 23), 12noon-4pm.

RHSC Sailability is a charity that is being set up to get people with disabilities out on the water and Caroline Wylson, RHSC Commodore, says this will help to make the club a truly inclusive sailing venue. “We have already been awarded £75,000 from Sport England Inspired Facilities Fund to put towards the build,” she said. “However we still need to raise more funds before we can start the building works.”

RHSC is situated on the River Rother close to Rye Bay where excellent sailing is enjoyed all year round. There are year round sailing and social events and the club prides itself in the diversity of its members’ sailing interests-many undertake substantial annual passages whilst others are happy to mess around on the river!

Caroline added: “Please do come along and enjoy our FUNdraising Fiesta. We are offering have a go at dinghy taster sailing or a taster sail on a Drascombe Lugger, with live music from The Rye Bay Crew, arts and crafts stalls, a 25’ high bouncy slide (if it’s not too windy) and BBQ.” Tickets £6 per adult or £10 for families (includes a raffle ticket). Call 01797 321395.
