Weymouth Sailing Club members have raised £620 for charity by holding a weekly meat draw at the club.

Led by Al Doughty, draw tickets were sold to members at their Nothe Parade HQ after racing in the autumn and winter sailing series held in Weymouth Bay last year.

Al decided to split the proceeds of the draw between two causes - Weldmar Hospicecare and 4Lorna.

Weldmar’s Joseph Weld Hospice cared for club member Nick Massey’s wife Nicola before she sadly passed away from cancer in October last year.

Their support enabled her to spend time at home in the last days of her illness.

4Lorna is a fund dedicated to sending Lorna Ewart to Newcastle for advanced surgery. Lorna has a rare genetic condition affecting her pancreas and NHS funding is not available for this treatment. Lorna’s mum Becky Ewart sails with Al on his boat Pepper of Kinsale.

Al said, “These are great causes that are very close to home for all of us at Weymouth Sailing Club.

I wish to thank all sailors and club members who helped make this fundraising such a success. We hope to raise even more this year.”

One hundred and sixteen members of Weymouth Sailing Club and their guests celebrated a year of sailing on Saturday 28th January with a dinner and dance held at the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy.

Commodore Euan McNair welcomed the deputy mayor, Councillor Gill Taylor, and her partner.

With dining over, dinghy and Squib sailor Phil Ashworth gave a witty and amusing speech, wryly explaining the many challenges of a race for those non-sailors in the audience.

M'c'd by Jim Mitchell, Trophies were awarded to winners of the season’s races, plus those that had ventured beyond the serene waters of Weymouth Bay.

Former Commodore Kathy Claydon was recognised for her superb achievement of completing the Fastnet race double-handed.

Michael and Di Gill received a trophy for their long distance sailing adventures in the Mediterranean whilst Simon and Jill Vines were awarded one for their high jinks in the Baltic.

Tributes were also paid to club member Ernie Lee, who has just hung up his oilskins for the last time at the age of 92.

Ernie started sailing in 1945.

One of the highlights of the evening was the award of Life Honourary Membership to popular club member, former Team GB Paralympic squad member and world champion 2.4 metre sailor, Megan Pascoe.

The evening finished with dancing to an all-request disco.

Although celebrating the previous year's sailing, the annual dinner signals the start of the new season, with class dinners, talks and boat lift-ins just around the corner.

The club welcomes sailors of any abilities and as a recognised RYA training establishment can help the complete novice to take the tentative steps out onto Weymouth's Olympic waters.

The club has it own fleet of dinghy's that are available for use by club members.

The clubhouse enjoys panoramic views of Weymouth Bay, has a fully stocked bar and a vibrant social scene.

So what's stopping you?
