    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Our Campaign here end on 19th April, but we still have a long way to go.
    We'll not give up, we believe we can at least move her away from chainsaws and bonfires, but not yet to a place where we can restore her.

    The whole fund needs just one of the following or a combination of parts.

    3000 people each donating £10
    1000 people each donating £30
    300 people each donating £100

    Tally Ho Is An Important Historic British Yacht, Designed n 1909 By The Great Albert Strange, But Is Threatened With Destruction If We can't Rescue Her --- by the end of June 2017

    Depending on what we raise we have three options: "just move her", "move her to a more heritage friendly US East coast site", "Bring Her Home" to the UK. We're seeking support and funds in several ways.

    Amongst Tally Ho's many achievements was winning the 1927 Fastnet Race in near storm conditions where only two yachts of the fleet managed to complete the race.

    "...Tally Ho, working toward the Lizard under reefed main and spitfire jib. High though the seas rose, she seemed as steady as a church, and we watched her in silent admiration.
    Here indeed was a competitor..."

    (Alf Loomis, La Goleta, Fastnet 1927)

    And here indeed is a yacht worth saving.

    That task of bringing her home makes significant demands on us. The estimate for the cost of doing that is around 30,000 pounds or dollars. That is far more that the ASA's current wealth. We are a just small association of like-minded enthusiasts and volunteers.

    Our aim at this point is, if at all possible, to raise the funds to achieve that repatriation.

      I'd like to say another thank you to everyone who has helped in the campaign. Those who have donated and those who went to the trouble of sharing the campaign on Facebook and via emails, talking with friends and the other things you've done for us. Obviously we fell far short of what we'd _hoped_ to achieve, but that was always a pretty big call, so we're both disappointed and delighted, which really is a most odd combination of feelings. We _will_ be able to get Tally Ho to a place of safety. We have more to do. G; ASA & Albert.

      Thank you very much to everyone who has helped in th campaign. Whilst we haven't raised enough to do what we'd hoped, we do still have more ideas, a couple of months before 'catastrophe day'. Tally Ho is too significant a vessel to be lost by just letting her slip though the fingers. Please keep in contact of the website and Facebook. Wish us further luck. We still have a long way to go. And again ... Thank you very much indeed for helping. Hmm, actually, as I write there's still nearly an hour to go. Just do it! :-) Gordon.

      Our ultimate aim is the rescue of this historic yacht. We are continually looking at how we can achieve that. We hope somehow to have her back in the UK and restored in time for the 2025 Fastnet Race centenary. At present all we can do is move her away from her immediate peril and that alone will cost more than we have raised, though the Albert Strange Association has a modest amount of money that it can also use to help. That move, though, does little to get her back to full health. She's still stuck thousands of miles from home.
