Local Charity helps Boleh sail Portsmouth children

By News

With help from Sussex-based Ian Askew Charitable Trust, Boleh has again been able to introduce Service schoolchildren to our maritime heritage and the ‘can-do’ message.  This time the students were from the North Parade Junior School – pictured here on completion of their sail with Skipper, Pete Green and Mate, Jeff Leigh-Jones.


Later this month Boleh is off to Portland to deliver a sailing programme for Dorset children

Boleh ‘adventure’ for Naval schoolchildren

By News

Thanks to Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity funding, Boleh has been able to start a programme of day sails for Portsmouth area schoolchildren from Naval families.  Students from Mayfield School, Portsmouth were introduced to the principles of sailing a traditional vessel and Boleh’s ‘can-do’ message by volunteer Skipper, Kevin Hood and Mate, Will Barker-Wyatt.

We look forward to working with the Naval Families Federation and Portsmouth City Council to arrange further day trips for Service children.  Picture shows Mayfield School students on board Boleh with Kevin and Will in the background

New website with the ‘Sail Boleh’ message

By News


We are delighted to announce that a generous donation from the Hedley Trust has given the Boleh Trust a new website. This has been designed and built by the Droxford-based company, ‘one2create’, with the help of long time volunteer and former Boleh Trustee, Sara Lamond. The new site will be managed by volunteer Katy Bater (our previous Project Co-ordinator who was with us throughout Boleh’s restoration) and will focus on the inspirational sailing experience offered by Boleh and her ‘can-do’ story.
