Isle of Wight sailing trip recommended

A cancer sufferer has stated that she would recommend Isle of Wight sailing holidays after she visited the island as part of a charity trip.

Claire Taylor, a 22-year-old from Spalding, headed to the island with the Ellen MacArthur Trust and says the trip has helped with her recovery, although she faces many more operations.

Speaking to the Spalding Guardian, she said: "You got so involved with the sailing and everyone was really helpful.

"I would recommend it to anyone. The best bit was chilling out in the evenings."

Ms Taylor added that she loved being able to make new friends on the break.

Dame Ellen added that the young people who go sailing around the Isle of Wight on trips with the trust are "amazing", even though nobody should have to experience what they have gone through.

The organisation dates back to 2000 and takes people aged between eight and 24 on sailing holidays in a bid to aid their recovery from cancer.
