Things To Know

For Supporters

Being 12, 13 or 14-years old is hard. But for kids with limited resources, it can be even harder.

Many grow up near the water but never really get to experience it.

When kids get the chance to have fun, sail a boat, learn about themselves, and discover what they can do it makes a difference.

We appreciate anything you can do to help us teach students life skills.

You can sponsor a child, programme, or give a one-off donation. We are deeply grateful for any contributions that come our way.
