Eddystone Charity Sailing Pursuit 2019

The excitement is building for this year’s Eddystone Charity Sailing Pursuit, the South West’s largest sailing fundraising event.  On Saturday 15th June 2019 our fleet will join a flotilla of boats for 26 miles of fun to the Eddystone lighthouse and back.

The Island Trust provides residential and day-sailing activities for young people with special needs, disabilities, and those experiencing hardship and deprivation. We work with individuals, schools, youth groups, church and community organisations. Sailing encourages co-operation, a sense of responsibility, instils a sense of adventure, develops initiative, social skills, feelings of self-worth, communication skills and acts as a catalyst to engagement with education and employment.

Please support The Island Trust crews in raising funds to send deserving young people on activity sailing voyages that could change the course of their lives.

£30 will help us to provide the food for a six day outdoor adventure for a young person in desperate need of a break.  £110 will buy a days outdoor activity sailing, and £550 a life-changing voyage of discovery.

If you are interested in entering your own boat and joining our team, or would like to be part of the crew, please contact Helen on 01752 823007 or email info@theislandtrust.org.uk.
