The Ceys committee are thrilled to hear that Sylvie and Jess, who learnt to sail with CEYS, have been selected onto the South West regional training group for the RS Feva class, a pathway to the GB team.

They told us: “We both fell in love with sailing aged 8 when we did the CEYS course and subsequently racing at both the Junior Camel Week and Camel Race week.  We are so excited to have been accepted onto this training group and none of this would have been possible without CEYS. We are now hoping to gain sponsorship from businesses to help fund the kit and travel costs we need to attend monthly training and events.”   You can follow the girls’ journey on Instagram @jessandsylviesailing


Around 40 players took part in a bridge tournament at Rock sailing club in October.  Many thanks to Fiona Lunt and Lynne Hough for organising this, which, along with a raffle, raised an incredible £800.

Rock Open Gardens Day - in aid of CEYS - was a great success on the last Sunday of May.  12 keen gardeners each opened their pride and joy to the over 220 visitors who came along with gardens ranging from seaside Mediterranean through to planting perfection and urban chic to country cottage idylls. Blessed by sunshine and cream teas, the event raised £1860; sufficient to teach 4 children how to sail through CEYS.

Many thanks to all who visited, helped, provided prizes and scones, gardens, free parking and plants!

Rock residents have once again got behind CEYS, by opening their gardens in aid of the charity.  11 wonderful gardens spanning the length of Rock, some with seaviews and all with enviable planting, will be welcoming visitors on Sunday 29th May, 2-5pm.

The cost is only £5 pp to see all the gardens or as many as you can fit in; there is no set order. Includes a free cream tea served at seaside garden Porthilly Stream all afternoon, or until all 200 servings are taken! A raffle and plant stall will feature in this garden.

Tickets are now available from Newslines newsagent at Pavilion building, Rock Road or on the day from 1-3.30pm outside the Dining Room restaurant.

Visitors are asked not to drive into the gardens but to park at Ferry Point or in John Bray's car-parking field opposite Rock Institute or on-road parking around the village. (John Bray has kindly offered a limited number of free parking passes to the first ticket buyers at The Dining Room restaurant on the day).  Please take care in the gardens and take note of the health and safety notices on tickets and on signs outside each garden.   All we need now is sunshine!
