Elaine & I were invited to represent the Borough when the Hayling Island Sailing Club held a Gala Dinner in order to celebrate the successes of the Team GB Olympic and Paralympic sailing team.

The teams won 1 Gold medal and 4 Silver medals at the Games, and we were fortunate to have the Gold medal winner, Paralympian Helena Lucas, at our table.

In all 9 members of the two teams were able to attend the dinner, together with Stephen Park, OBE, the Olympic sailing team manager.

Towards the end of the evening, Stephen gave a very interesting illustrated talk, which he punctuated by asking various members of the teams to come up and speak of their experiences. The talk finished with a short video of some of the events.
