Stamford Endowed Schools’ sailing club has two new Wanderer dinghies thanks to a £10,000 grant from Sport England.
The two new boats will be a welcome addition to the existing nine-strong fleet of RS Fevas and 420s.
Before the arrival of the Wanderers, the school’s sailing club’s fleet at Rutland Water was geared towards younger sailors and experienced older students who race the 420 at club level. Sixth form sailors of all abilities will now be able to get involved.
The club is also offering Royal Yacht Association Level 2 and 3 courses to parents so that they can use the boats with their families at the weekends.
