Listeners to BBC Radio Berkshire will know that Tim Dellor, their Sports Correspondent, very gamely agreed to take on the challenge of 29 Olympic Sports in a week for Sports Relief. On Monday 12th March he arrived at BSC to take on his sailing challenge where three boats (Finn; Laser; and RS Vision) had been rigged for him to choose from.
On a typical day at BSC with beautiful sunshine and a steady light breeze, Tim started with an interview for radio with some friendly banter with Charles Gilchrist and Peter Colvin. When Tim asked Charles which boat he should try, he was advised to take the Laser - because it would be the easiest to right when he capsized! Common sense prevailed in the end and the Vision was launched with Tim at the helm and Charles crewing.
