Cows Rotarians support Cowes Sailability
Established in 2002 under the auspices of the RYA Sailability Initiative, Cowes Sailability Club was formed to promote and facilitate water sports for Island people with disabilities. In 2010 the Club was granted the Queen's Award for Voluntary Services. At a ceremony in July at the Cowes Corinthian Yacht Club, Cowes Rotary Club immediate past President, Brian Saunders, presented the Commodore of Cowes Sailability, Patrick de Peyer, with a cheque for £400 to help with the ongoing costs of Cowes Sailability.
