RYA Volvo Youth National Championships 2011 - Olympic champion Paul Goodison heads down to Nationals tomorrow!

Olympic champion Paul Goodison heads down to Nationals tomorrow!


Fresh from his gold medal win in Palma, Olympic champion Paul Goodison will be heading down to Hayling Island for the final day of the Championships tomorrow.

Any questions for Paul just ask! He will be heading out on the water in the morning to watch the final races and on hand for any racing tips and advice. Following the days racing he will be helping with the championship prize givings.

You can get your hands on one of Paul's Olympic rash vests in Volvo Car UKs charity auction. The original rash vest was worn by Paul Goodison in his successful quest for gold in 2008. 100% of all proceeds from this auction will go to the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust. 

The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust aims to support, empower and enliven young people aged 8-24 who are recovering from cancer, leukaemia or other serious illness, by introducing them to the joys of sailing at sea. The simple experience of going out on a yacht, usually for the first time, is an exciting challenge that can help to rebuild their confidence in a safe and supportive environment.

Check out the vest hanging on the wall of the Sailing Club's bar (by the snooker table) and to place your bid head to our Facebook tab here http://www.facebook.com/VolvoCarsSailing?sk=app_188176311226229 .

The auction finishes at 14.20 on SUNDAY 18th APRIL.
