In April we had 58 berths filled on sails by enabled crew members who comprised a mixture of our own members and people from Community Groups. These sails were supported by 22 of our able bodied members who filled 36 crew slots on the sails. This ratio resulted in 61.7% of the persons sailing being classified as enabled.
In the period October- April 33 of our enabled members have enjoyed one or more sails on Pride of Mann III, which is quite good when you consider this is the winter period. Those sailing equates to approximately 33% our members with a disability having sailed so far during a period when it’s been cold out on the water.
Community Groups who sailed with us in April were Ballacottier Rainbow Group, Peel Clothworkers School, Ramsey Grammar School, Crossroads Carers and Manx Blind Welfare Society.
In addition to the local sails that took place the first cruise of the year was completed with four male members under the age of 18 enjoying a visit to Bangor NI.
This afternoon Sunday 3rd May we had the privilege of being part of the small flotilla of boats that followed Peel lifeboat out of the bay. Prior to the lifeboat launching a service was held in the boat house to remember those lost on the 7th May 1915 when the Cunard luxury liner RMS Lusitania was torpedoed off the southern coast of Ireland by a German U-boat. The service also recognised the bravery of the crew of the Peel fishing boat the Wanderer who saved 160 lives.
Whilst a piper played from the breakwater we followed the lifeboat and the other boats behind the castle where from the lifeboat they scattered poppies on the sea and Peel Commissioner Kate Felton who was with us laid a wreath in memory of those lost.
