Otley Sailing Club receives royal recognition
10:00am Wednesday 9th October 2013 in News
An inspirational sports club will be presented with a second officia Royal ‘thank you’.
Otley Sailing Club is one of just 40 organisations to have been picked to receive a Duke of York’s Community Initiative award.
The accolade is presented each year to a small number of Yorkshire-based groups deemed to be “of real value to the community, well run and an inspiration to others”.
The Otley club has been serving its local community, by offering sailing and Royal Yachting Association training to enthusiasts of all ages since its founding in 1958.
Club commodore Matt Thomas will be joined by vice-commodore Paul Karran, Norman Stephens of Sailfree, and Peter Fox, representing Sailability, when he travels to Bridlington Spa to receive the award from the Duke of York.
