Boleh’s Story in Practical Boat Owner!

Boleh’s Story in Practical Boat Owner!

By | News

We’re thrilled to say that May’s edition of the popular magazine Practical Boat Owner (www.pbo.co.uk/publication/pbo/may-2020) has the perfect antidote to the anxieties facing us all.  Pick up a copy when shopping for essentials, then turn to page 46 where you will find Boleh the subject of a richly illustrated article.

Huw Williams, freelance writer and circumnavigator, gives full coverage to Boleh’s inspiring ‘can-do’ story before giving a detailed description of his personal experience of Boleh.  He sums up his day out  “. . .  having just been sailing on Boleh, I can’t stop smiling.  I’m just like the young children who step aboard her for sail training and say ‘Its just like a pirate ship!’ ”.  Thank you Huw and PBO, we can’t stop smiling either.

COVID-19 Puts Boleh Trust Business On Hold

By | News

As we warned only a week ago, the Boleh Trust must operate within the Government Guidelines to control this catastrophic outbreak of Coronavirus.  The worsening situation now means Boleh’s exciting 2020 Sailing Programme is clearly no longer feasible.  With great regret the Boleh Trust is therefore shutting down all operations until further notice.

Boleh Trustees, the Boleh team and our operational support staff at Halcyon Yachts Ltd will be working from home, ensuring Boleh is ready for the hoped for re-start of the sailing season.   At this point, we would like to say how very grateful we are to all our generous donors, our wonderful volunteer crews and the Boleh team.  They have enabled us to present Boleh for this Season in tip top condition.

While we and our friends and supporters are facing the challenges ahead and dreaming of calm seas and a fair wind (see picture), the Trust website and social media will, we hope, continue to post stories with the ‘can-do’ spirit.  We will also continue to welcome volunteers and to seek further much appreciated support for our charitable work.  Thank you all and Good Luck
