We are thrilled to report that, after a 7 year restoration in Portsmouth, Boleh is finally back in the water and preparing for her next journey. The picture shows her lying in Chichester Marina, masts stepped, awaiting sails and sea trials. In August Boleh will be heading West to join the inspirational charity Sea Sanctuary in Falmouth where she will be based.

This change of course away from Portsmouth reflects the success of our sister charity, the Portsmouth Sail Training Trust, whose impressive programmes for raising the aspirations of inner city children now utilise smaller craft. Sea Sanctuary employ larger, traditionally built wooden sailing vessels, combined with the ‘can do’ ethos, to improve the mental wellbeing of adults and young people from around the country.
