Children in Need 24 hour Sail-a-thon

This will be the 20th year of CiN fundraising by the children of Salterns Sailing Club. Every year Salterns sailors have carried out a 24 hour sail-a-thon, sailing around the clock to help raise funds for children less fortunate than them.

This year the Children in Need sail-a-thon will take place on 16th-17th November and we hope that all members will support the event.

The event will start at 4.30pm on Friday 16th November. Ideally we would like some children down at Salterns from 4.15pm and out sailing on the pond as soon as possible thereafter as we have a BBC crew coming to film Commodore Alex for BBC South Today and Radio Solent.

Red pennants will be able to sail until 10pm on the Friday, however it will be down to our most able sailors, our blue and green pennants, to help get us through the night. Blue and green pennants may sail the overnight slots, from 10pm to 6am, and will be allowed to sleep overnight at the club if they’re over the age of 11 years.

If you do wish to sail you will need a parent or guardian at the club for the whole time. Also if you are staying overnight you will a parent sleeping there too. Sailors wishing to sail overnight should email to be added to the rota.

All members can sail in the day time slots from 9am Saturday until the end of the sail-a-thon at 4.30pm.
