Funding provided by the Heritage Lottery Fund has helped design and test the sail training programmes for Boleh when she is fully operational. John Gillard, who will become Boleh’s Sailing Master, has been able to take over 40 staff and pupils from Charter Academy to sea.

The taster sessions have been a complete success and the Charter Academy Sailing Club is now up and running.

See pictures of these sessions delivered by our sister charity, Portsmouth Sail Training Trust here.
