Many congratulations to our amazing Olympic medallists – didn’t they do well!  How very proud we all are of them.

Saskia Clark and Hannah Mills won gold for Britain in the Womens’ 470 sailing class.  It was Saskia’s Dad who first introduced her to sailing and her favourite childhood sailing boat was a wooden Optimist which is the best boat for youngsters who want to learn to sail.

The Bitter End Yacht Club on Virgin Gorda offers a children’s sailing programme and the instructors start their young would be sailors off on Optimists!

If you have children who would like to follow in Saskia’s footsteps or simply just enjoy messing about on the water, there is no place on the planet offering the facilities that Bitter End offer.  It’s a great place to start!
