Club could sail off with top honour after flood misery

Have your say

A sailing club has been shortlisted for a prestigious honour.

Ulley Sailing Club, based at Ulley Country Park near Rotherham, has reached the final round of the Club of the Year award from the Royal Yachting Association.

Members of the club - which was under threat due to damage caused during the floods of summer 2007 - will find out in a ceremony on Saturday whether they have triumphed.

Commodore David Holt said being shortlisted was the ‘icing on the cake after many years of hard work’ by club members.
