Rutland Sailability volunteer from Grantham is honoured with RYA Sailability Volunteer of the Year Award
A Rutland Sailability volunteer, who has dedicated her retirement to supporting disabled people to get on the water, has been honoured with the national RYA Sailability Volunteer of the Year Award.
Former teacher, Ann Molyneux, has been involved with disability sailing since the 1980s, after meeting fellow teacher and Rutland Sailability’s top international sailor and former Paralympic hopeful, Val Millward, through their profession. But after retiring, Ann moved from Essex to Grantham to be nearer the sailors she was now supporting as part of Rutland Sailability and the UK Challenger class, which is one of the most popular disability sailing boats.
The RYA Sailability Volunteer of the Year Award is presented each year to a volunteer who has given significant time and energy over the course of the year or towards a specific project; who goes above and beyond and is a real ambassador for all that Sailability represents.
