We are racing a 28' cruising yacht in the Round the Island Race on July 7th. The race has upwards of 1300 competitors and circumnavigates the Isle of Wight. The challenge is to both complete the 50 nautical mile course and do this in under 12 hours!
We are doing this to raise awareness and funds for the work of the Salvation Army in the UK and Poland, Eastern Europe as it works with the most vulnerable in society and against the scourge of human trafficking in modern slavery. Please support us generously in this worthwhile cause!
The Salvation Army is a registered charity and church working in 120 countries worldwide and is one of the largest and most diverse providers of social welfare in the world. In the UK and Republic of Ireland this work includes more than 800 Salvation Army social service centres and community churches. We provide unconditional friendship, support and very practical help to people in crisis and need and work with children, older people, homeless people and those dealing with drug and/or alcohol addiction.
