We’re currently in the midst of the Volvo Ocean Race, one of the most grueling sailing competitions in the world. And it’s got us thinking, what if we hadn’t had exposure to the tools and training needed to get us where we are today? Last July we visited Rocking the Boat, a Bronx, NY-based non profit that uses boat building to empower disadvantaged youth to set ambitious goals and gain the skills necessary to achieve them.
Our two organizations, although completely diverse, are unified by a passion for sailing. We want to offer our support to the volunteers from Rocking the Boat, in turn helping them to continue transforming the lives of their students.
We’ve set up a unique GoFundMe campaign to fundraise for a new 20-foot rigid inflatable boat (RIB) so they can easily transport kids from the clubhouse to the sailboats in the open water! Less transport time = more learning!
Interested in helping to support this initiative and to help build the next generation of sailors?
Please join us by making a donation to our GoFundMe page, every cent will go to Rocking the Boat at the completion of this campaign.
Thank you for helping us support Rocking the Boat!
