I have been selected for the final leg, racing "Rona II" from Halifax in Nova-Scotia, Canada to Le Havre, France.

The leg will challenge both my physical and mental strength, but will also challenge the strength of the 14 other crew and 8 watch officers. Everyone on board are competent sailors with mixed experience and it will be a pleasure to sail with them.

Half of the fee I am paying my self, but the other half needs to come from fund raising. If all you can spare is £1 then you will have helped me achieve my goal. All of the money raised will go to The Rona Sailing Project to help fund more trips or for the creation and the maintenance of the boats.

I would be really grateful for your support - and I will be posting updates prior to the race to keep you informed of how things are going.

Many thanks and Regards
Oliver Jones

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!
