Weʼre raising £8,000 to help fund towards a competitive sailing dinghy called a "Tasar". Bailey and myself are looking to compete in events as a father & son team.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The story for looking to funding towards the cost of a new boat comes from being a passionate pair of dinghy sailor's. I myself have competed in the World Championships in 2013 and in 3 National Championships, 2013, 2014, 2015. Unfortunately due to lack of crew and condition of boat, I have not been able to compete in the last 2 World Championships 2015 and 2017 or National Championships for 2016 and 2017.
My son Bailey has now had his 13th birthday and he himself is a very good little sailor. Bailey has asked if we could sail together in more events and he would love to learn the Tasar more. I would love to do this as a father / son event, but it really comes down to cost of a new boat. The Tasar is a great boat, very technical but a good boat to learn more in-depth sailing. With your support in helping us to fund a dream, hopefully this can become reality.
