As well as funding two places on Maybe for the Tall Ships race in August, Superyacht Charities has donated funds for 20 children in Osprey class at Foxhole Academy to learn to sail this year, for which we and the school are extremely grateful.
Superyacht Charities harnesses the energies and generosity of the companies and individuals working in the superyacht industry to generate funding for charitable causes – also natural disaster relief in third world countries related to the sailing industry.
Chairman Derek Munro said: “Learning to sail is exciting and fun. It also teaches attitudes and skills of real value to children in their learning and in their growth into confident young people. And who knows – with so many Cornish people working in the superyacht industry – getting RYA qualifications may one day help the children into quality jobs.”
Thank you, Derek and thank you Superyacht Charities.
