It's my party and I'll scream if I want to... would scream to if it happened to you!

Scream with joy and happiness I mean!

My great once in a lifetime opportunity I've been cryptically referring to has been all but confirmed. There is a very slim chance it won't happen because there is a limit to the number of wheelchair users who can go at any one time but...

The Rotary Club in this area are sponsoring a place on a Jubilee Sailing Trust voyage. And Pam who runs my sailability group nominated me and one other member. So I wrote 200 words about myself and sent it to them last week as they asked. Ever since I've been waiting not so patiently to hear yes or no.

I got a letter today which basically says "thanks for getting back to us so quickly, heres the actual application form from Jubilee Sailing Trust. We don't anticipate there will be any problems but don't assume anything until you hear for definite."

This is what the JST's website says about their work
The JST owns and operates two tall ships, LORD NELSON, and TENACIOUS. These magnificent ships are the only two vessels in the world that have been purpose-designed and built to enable a crew of mixed physical abilities to sail side by side on equal terms.

Congratulations, Emma. While not quite a sure thing, it does sound like you're going to be joining the upper-crust yachting set. Happy sailing!
