Story

We've decided to enter our Class 40 yacht Fortissimo into the Gosport Peninsula Charity Pursuit and are looking for crew to help us navigate the race track out to the Nab Tower and back. 

We're supporting the Rona Sailing Project as one of their key aims is to provide opportunities for young people to learn new skills, develop a sense of responsibility, demonstrate resourcefulness and to put it all into practice using teamwork. This strikes a chord with us and we're proud that they will be our chosen charity partner for the event. To find out more about the wonderful work they do please take a look here:
http://www.ronasailingproject.com

There are a maximum of 6 crew spaces available to whoever would like to join us. If you've not sailed on Fortissimo before then you're in for a real treat and will be one of a select group who have the opportunity to experience a thoroughbred racing boat normally only sailed by professional teams. At the same time you'll be helping to support a fantastic cause! 

To become part of the crew for this we're asking you to donate a minimum of £50 to our chosen charity, the Rona
Sailing Project
(part of the Rona Trust), although there is no upper limit to what you can donate. In return for your donation you'll get to spend the day with us, enjoying the festivities and competing in the pursuit race.

Please confirm with us before donating as a member of the crew but you're more than welcome to donate anything you can towards the total.

Thanks!
