I'm raising money to do Leg 4 (Boston - Miramichi, Canada) of the Rendezvous 2017 Transatlantic Tall Ships Race with the Rona Sailing Project.
I've been dinghy sailing for 9 years now but first got involved with Rona earlier this year when I went on an STV. On the STV I received an Amory award (allowing me to apply for the Tall Ships race) and a recommendation for Watch Leader so I am now also training to be a Junior Watch Leader with the project.
Rona is a fantastic organisation which takes young people to sea and inspires team work and personal development within all who partake in its voyages.
Rendezvous 2017 Transatlantic Tall Ships Race
In 2017 we will be racing our flagship “Rona II” from the UK to
Portugal, across the Atlantic to Bermuda, the US, Canada and back across the
Atlantic to France, giving crews of deserving teenagers a once in a lifetime
opportunity. To do so we need to raise money and support to refit “Rona II”,
train our adult volunteers and the crew, and to cover the myriad costs of such
a huge undertaking. On our return not only will the participants have gained
value life lessons in teamwork, self-reliance, self-confidence and leadership,
but the fully updated “Rona II” will be ready to serve thousands more teenagers
over many more years. It is a major project for us – but one that we will
succeed in, with your support!
