Eddystone Charity Sailing Pursuit

Next event Saturday 20 June 2020 – POSTPONED due to COVID-19

Eddystone Charity Sailing Pursuit

Every year in June we join a flotilla of boats for the South West’s largest sailing fundraising event, the Eddystone Charity Sailing Pursuit; 26 miles of fun to the Eddystone lighthouse and back.

The funds we raise enable us to continue our work providing sail training opportunities, through financial and moral support, to young people who could not otherwise contemplate taking part in activities of this kind.  Through our residential and day sailing programs young sailors return home with increased motivation, confidence, team-working, leadership and communication skills, and a fresh perspective on their self-worth and abilities.

The 2019 pursuit yielded yet another successful fundraising event for The Island Trust, generating the fantastic sum of £20,200. Catch up with the day’s events on our news page >>>.

This year’s date is Saturday 20 June 2020 – POSTPONED due to COVID-19.  If you are interested in joining us in this popular event, you can enter your own boat and join our team, or you can come on board one of our boats and be part of our crew – no experience or prior skill is needed, our professional staff will coach you in every aspect of sailing.
