My husband and I work for a Christian Charity which runs gap year training courses for young people wanting to be involved with christian work overseas. We have been working with this charity on a 42 metre sailing ketch in the med for the last two years but recently left to run a similar course shorebased. We absolutely love sailing and have seen the benefits it creates with leadership development and teambuilding and we are wanting to incorporate it into our teaching weeks.
We live near Brighton, UK and have been trying to find boats to charter/borrow for a while. Would anyone be interested in either letting us charter you boat or maybe even investing a couple of days to a group of young international students.
My husband has his coastal skipper RYA qualification (commercially endorsed) and has also been going weekly to race with Brighton Yacht club on a Sunday morning. More information about our organisation can be found at http://www.ywamholmsted.org/
We only have between £500 - £600 per week for 12 to 15 people. Please let us know if your interested.
