AT the age of 10, George Graham, who attends St Paul’s C of E Primary School in Nelson, has been selected for the 4.2 National Sailing Squad.

He has already attended two Training events in the Midlands., as well as travelling all the way to Weymouth to the National Sailing Academy, the venue for the Olympics.

Later this year he will be competing in several National events at Grafham, Northampton, Weymouth, Largs in Scotland and Pwllheli in North Wales.

George, who sails at Burwain Sailing Club, based on Foulridge Reservoir, has shown that he has great potential and started sailing at the age of four.

For him to fulfil that potential it is necessary to travel to bigger competitions.

George has received kind donations from local businesses, but is still seeking a headline sponsor to help fund the travel costs and entry fees, and if you would consider sponsoring George. please email
