Story

Stephen, Dave, David, Paul and Govind are crewing Ilios in the round the Island Race on Saturday 27th June, when some 1,700 boats will set sail from Cowes to circumnavigate the Isle of Wight.

They are raising funds for the Tall Ships Youth Trust, formerly The Sail Training Association, which is a registered charity founded in 1956 that is dedicated to the personal development of young people through the crewing of ocean-going sail training vessels. It is the UK’s oldest and largest sail training charity for young people aged 12-25. Stephen recently became a Trustee of the charity.
