Gunfleet’s very own Cadet Rear Commodore Daisy Swinbourne has been crowned winner of the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show Start Sailing Competition 2014 and scoops-up the winner takes all, mega prize package.
After entering the free prize draw at the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show back in March Daisy was picked from amongst some 1,500 entries as the grand prize winner.
Daisy’s bumper prize package included a star prize of a brand new Topaz Taz dinghy, with full rig courtesy of Topper Sailboats International Ltd, plus all these other amazing prizes:
• Wetsuit, Boots, Spraytop, Buoyancy Aid donated by Gul
• Sailing Watch, Sunglasses and Kitbag donated by Ronstan
• Garmin VIRB Elite action camera
• A pair of deck shoes from Deck Shoes Unlimited
• Start Sailing course with SWAC
• Years free subscription to Yachts & Yachting magazine
• A year’s free junior membership at Datchet Water Sailing Club
• Selection of RYA Publications
“I was so surprised when I found out I had won. It feels really good to be the winner of this amazing prize”, commented Daisy.
The ‘Start Sailing’ competition was aimed at people who had never sailed before or perhaps were thinking about getting back in to the sport. The idea of the area is to give people coming to the show who are just getting started or want to find out more the chance to chat with experts at the show about the best boats, where to learn, kit and much more, and the competition is the cherry on the cake giving visitors the chance to win everything they need to get started.
Daisy ended the day by saying: “If you visit the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show next year make sure you take part in the ‘Start Sailing’ competition because you could be a winner like me!”
All the members of the Gunfleet Sailing Club would like to congratulate Daisy on her brilliant win and it shows just how lucky we all can be at the best little sailing club on the east coast.
