A thank you from South Africa

The first Topper sail donated by UK sailors to youngster of the Skipper Foundation, Mossel Bay, South Africa has been delivered.

With all their original sails completely worn out, the Skipper Foundation charity was unable to get their Toppers afloat. The sailors there were so pleased to have received a replacement sail, kindly donated by Cathy Brassington, that they sent this message to say thank you. Watch their message here.

Thanks also to Mark Aitken and Frances Daubney of Warsash SC who have also donated sails to the Foundation. If you have a redundant sail still in usable condition to donate to the charity that supports vulnerable youngsters from Mossel Bay townships to learn to sail, as well as supporting their education and personal development, then please contact the Secretary General at ITCA World.
