Request from a French sailor
A family of a young French sailor, a participant in the 29ER competition 7-15 August, has enquired if a family would agree to accommodate Louis from 22 July until his team arrives on 7 August. He is a 17 year old young man from Marseilles and he would like to practise his English prior to beginning university in September. As a very experienced sailor he would be available and able to assist the sailing club's activities in whatever way was needed. It would also be possible to organise a return visit on an exchange basis to stay with Louis' family in Marseilles in August. The family has indicated that any costs would, of course, be met by them.
If you require any further information please contact Gareth at the Sailing Club.
