Pontoon makes it plain sailing
Date: 2012-01-04

FOR years, volunteers have endured the cold and wet at Farmoor Reservoir to help disabled sailors like Emma Crees enjoy life on the water.
 
Now a specially designed ?00,000 pontoon will make the task of helping sailors into boats plain sailing.
 
The pontoon was officially launched on Tuesday, following a 10-year fundraising campaign by Oxford Sailing Club, disabled sailing group Oxford Sailability and Thames Wat-er, which runs the reservoir.
 
The 150ft long steel structure includes a funicular car to take sailors in their wheelchairs to the boats.
 
There is also a sunken deck which makes life easier for volunteers helping sailors get into their boats.
 
Ms Crees, 30, from Didcot, has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair.

An Oxford Sailability member since 2006, she said: 揤olunteers won抰 have to wade out to boats so much and manhandle the sailors in and out of their boats.
 
揑 love it here and I feel this will give me a lot more independence.?

Oxford Sailability抯 David Newton welcomed disabled sailor Geoff Holt to the reservoir to officially open the new pontoon.
 
Mr Newton said: 揟he fund-raising project started in 2002 so this has been a long time coming.
