Campaign: To encourage young people to take up sailing

I have spent my life around water and on boats, and I subsequently have a great passion for sailing.

 

It's a sport that I believe builds confidence, skills and self-esteem, yet I don’t think enough young people get involved with it.

 

This is because yachting has an elitist stigma attached to it; people are under the illusion that wealth is required to take part in sailing when that isn’t the case.

 

With the help of Fixers, I have created a flyer advertising local sailing clubs and encouraging people to get involved.

 

I hope to shed a different light on the hobby and wash away the preconceptions surrounding it.

 

There are so many opportunities for people to get involved with sailing - they just need to put themselves out there.
