We are delighted to announce that in line with the easing of COVID restrictions this week we are taking initial yet cautious steps to getting back on the water with volunteer training and familiarisation days. Safety is our top priority, and so while this is a welcome move, our approach is one of cautious optimism as we emerge from lockdown in accordance with the COVID-19 Response – Spring 2021 (Roadmap) We expect training and familiarisation days and voyages to be our main focus until at least the middle of May, and we expect to start our sail training voyages in late June.
We have had the unwavering support of our donors and supporters; The Searle Family Trust, The Viscount Amory Trust, the Girdlers Charitable Trust, the Leathersellers’ Company and ASTO to name a few. Our gratitide is also extended to the entire team at Universal Marina for continuing to provide top class berthing, office, utilities and support to the RSP.
Not being able to set sail in over the last 12 months has been difficult and while we have missed seeing our volunteers and trainees, we have, with their incredible support, been fortunate to weather the storm. We look forward to getting back to what we do best for them, and with them.
The Rona Sailing Project is still here in these extreme circumstances, because of the support of so many and we are excited to welcome you back on the water in due course.
Please email or call us if you have any queries and keep an eye on our website and social media for updates as we respond to the changing circumstances.
