Bessie sails the Eddystone 2018 for HorizonsA fundraising project by Andrew Eccleston
On Saturday 23 June 2018 'Bessie' will be taking part in the Eddystone Charity Pursuit.
The crew will be Andrew Eccleston, with two of our fantastic volunteers David Oatway and Sue Carlyon, together with some of the young people who sail with Horizons Children's Sailing Charity.
Horizons helps disadvantaged and disabled children from the inner city communities of Plymouth.
We do this by providing learning and educational opportunities that increase self-confidence and improve social and practical skills, through water-based activities that would normally be beyond the means of these children.
Every year we run about 3,000 individual sessions involving hundreds of young people aged 8 to 19 – and everyone is welcome!
To keep our children safe on the water we have to have the best equipment and staff. We need your support to keep doing this important work.
Last year we got close to our target of £1,000 - and picked up some prize money. With your help we can do even better in 2018!

'Bessie' is a Dufour 36 Classic and we will sail out to the Eddystone Light from Plymouth, and back again. It's about 26 miles.
