Hannah Snellgrove Worlds Fundraiser

Fundraising evening to support one of our very own club members to participate in the World Championships.
Friday 8th June – a very special night of music, food, auction and a unique event you won’t want to miss.

This fundraising event is organised to help Hannah get to the World Championships in August and potentially compete for an Olympic place.  Hannah is a 27-year-old Lymington Town Sailing Club member. She sails a Laser Radial (the women’s single-handed Olympic class) and has made a return to the Olympic sailing circuit after a two year break from international competition.

The plan is for an evening of music, food, fun games, an auction and a special challenge undertaken by some of the club members.
