Earsay sails into first place

Local charity Earsay, renamed from the Jersey Society for Deaf Children and Young Adults recently beat seven crews to win the 2011 Le Tournoi Sailing Challenge and come runners up, by a single point in the European EUROSAF Championship.

The Earsay crew, a split of both novice and experienced sailors along with a split of hering and hearing-impaired individuals proved formidable opposition by coming second in both of the initial races and then clocking up first places for the final three races, culminating in an overall win.

Mark Burby, Earsay Chairman said; ‘We took this opportunity to take part in the sailing challenge to bring attention to our new identity but to also bring attention to the fact that hearing and hearing impaired invidividuals can work together to achieve the same challenging goals’.
