Salterns 24 Hour Sailathon

Every year Salterns Sailing Club raises funds for the BBC Children In Need Appeal - 2020 will be the 22nd year!

The children of Salterns raise money through sponsorship of a 24 Hour Sailathon: during a 24 hour period there are at least two boats out sailing continuously on the pond. Over the last 21 years Salterns has raised over £159,000 for Children in Need - a fantastic effort for a small, children's sailing club!

As well as sponsorship, there are many other fun activities at the club, plus a Silent Auction and Tombola. This year there will also be food and drinks on sale throughout the Saturday, for members and friends, it's definitely worth coming along!

2020's BBC Children In Need 24 hour Sail-a-thon will start at 4.30pm on Friday 13 November and finish at 4.30pm on Saturday 14 November.


All Members, Affilate Members, Old Salts and friends of Salterns are very welcome to come and help make this a great event. Only current members (under 17) with green pennant have the privilege of staying to sail all night!

More details will follow nearer the time, members will have the opportunity to sign up to participate on WebCollect and Associate Groups committing to raise funds for the Salterns Children in Need appeal will be given an allotted time slot in which they can come and sail.

And this year the end of the Sail-a-thon will see the Grand Finale of the Moth and Tera Race Series - sure to pull a crowd for the last 2 hours of sailing!

Full details of the 2020 Sailathon will be available here in due course.
