Boleh ended the 2018 season in style last month, competing in the Small Ships Race from Cowes (pictured) and then taking Service schoolchildren from Springfield School on the final day sail of our Naval Families Federation programme. We look forward to repeating both these activities in the full sailing programme planned for next year.
This year Boleh has taken over 150 young people to sea from Sussex, Hampshire, the Isle of Wight and Dorset. We have also enjoyed sailing numerous adults, some travelling from the other side of the world to recapture their Boleh ‘can do’ experience. Highlights have been the Cowes Race and the emotional reunion of Roger Angel’s family and friends with the vessel he saved in 1978. You can see a record of both these events on our social media at our Facebook and Instagram pages respectively.
Finally, we are very grateful to all those who have made Boleh’s 2018 programme possible: firstly, our volunteers, Skippers and Mates; and secondly, all those who have generously funded our charitable activities.
