The Eddystone Charity Sailing Pursuit Saturday 17 June 2017

The excitement is building for this year’s Eddystone Charity Sailing Pursuit, the South West’s largest sailing fundraising event on Saturday 17 June 2017.  Please support our important work with deserving young people by sponsoring our teams in the 26 mile marathon challenge.

Last year we were thrilled to win the highest scoring three boat team and Pegasus came 3rd overall in the event. This year we hope to beat our 2016 total of £11,328, and with your help we could well achieve that.

The Eddystone Charity Sailing Pursuit is our main fundraising event of the year, and funds raised will enable us to continue our work providing opportunities, financial and moral support, and sail training expertise for young people who could not otherwise contemplate taking part in activities of this kind. Through our sailing programs young sailors return home with increased motivation, leadership and communication skills, and a fresh perspective on their self-worth and abilities.

You can sponsor our team by donating using the links opposite, or if you prefer to donate by another method, more ways to donate can be found on our Donate page (kindly mark your donation ‘Eddystone’, and if you are a UK tax payer please download and complete the Gift Aid Declaration which will enable us to reclaim 25p for every £1 that you give).

If you are interested in entering your own boat and joining our team, or if you are interested in being part of the crew, please telephone 01752 823007 or email info@theislandtrust.org.uk. More information about the pursuit can be found here on The Eddystone Charity Sailing Pursuit’s website.
