ULLEY SC IS A FINALIST FOR THE RYA'S
"2014 CLUB OF THE YEAR"!
Last year, Ulley Sailing Club received a Certificate of Commendation from the RYA for reaching the last eight in the competition to become the "Club of the Year". This year we have gone one better and we are one of the five finalist club (RYA Announcement).
Initially, clubs had to submit an "Expression of Interest" form and a short-list was then asked to prepare 10 Powerpoint slides presenting their case. To see these slides, CLICK HERE.

Our Commodore says:
We are all thrilled that Ulley Sailing Club has been selected as a finalist for the RYA Club of the Year 2014 award. The winner will be announced at the Dinghy Show at Alexandra Palace on 1st March. Many of our members will be there to cheer us on.
The club has worked unstintingly to rebuild itself since the disastrous flooding in 2007, renewing equipment, facilities and club boats and attracting many new members through Open Day events and sailing taster sessions.
Last year we were awarded RYA Recognised Training Centre status – a magnificent achievement.
Being selected as a finalist for the Club of the Year award is the icing on the cake for us.
Many thanks to our management committee and to the many other members who have worked so hard in bringing the club to its proud position today.

It takes more than a broken boat to stop Team Ulley from sailing!
