In response to the latest advice from the Government on social distancing to reduce the spread of coronavirus, the Trustees of The Island Trust have decided to suspend all sailing operations until the end of May. We will be contacting those groups and individuals with bookings during this period over the next week on a rolling basis.
Sailing training is a fabulous and sometimes life-changing activity for the young people that sail with us and we hate to think of some having to miss out on this opportunity so we will be working hard to reschedule trips either later in the season or next year. Equally, we are realistic about the current environment and are keeping the situation under regular review. Those with bookings later in the season will be contacted in due course.
May we take this opportunity to send our best wishes to all our staff, beneficiaries, donors and friends. Undeniably there will be some difficult times ahead but we are looking forward to the day when we can resume operations.
