24hr Sail Challenge

326% Raised

As many will know, Ben and I are avid sailors and heavily involved in a sailing charity for children run by children (yes, we include ourselves!) based in North West London. Between us we have delivered 2500 hours of teaching to the next generation of sailors. During the pandemic, we set up our sailing courses to be safe, so that the community could continue to enjoy our work. 

However, we could only use our fully qualified instructors which reduces our team by upto 65%. The operation of the club is very much on the shoulders of our 13-18 year olds. We are now looking for support to help these talented young individuals pursue their dreams of becoming instructors like us! 

So, on the 26th June @1200, fuelled on Bacon Rolls and Tea, the 'big kid' duo will set off sailing for 24 hours, supported by a crack team of volunteers. We would appreciate any support on the day too, so we are inviting you to come down sailing with us during the day and the following day too (COVID Restrictions permitting of course). Unfortunately, we cannot have anyone sailing at night with us, even though that would have been totally awesome!
