Hi, I’m Jon Osbiston. It’s a great privilege to be the Chairman of Milton Keynes Sailability. I am responsible for ensuring the Milton Keynes Sailability group can operate. Of course none of this will be possible without all the help from the volunteers and committee.
I have been sailing since I was 15 years old (which was rather a long time ago) Although I can sail most boats, I prefer yacht sailing as there are many more aspects to consider on a larger boat than just pointing into the wind! I have been involved in Sailability for about 8 years now and nothing gives me greater pleasure than seeing the smile on people’s faces when they get afloat. As a group I am keen that we can further develop our membership and recruit more volunteers and sailors to join us during the year.
The situation with Covid has been very difficult for the group, but I firmly believe that we will come out of the worst of it later
this year and we can return to sailing properly.
