TALL SHIPS YOUTH TRUST CHALLENGER FLEET TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ROLEX FASTNET CAMPAIGN

Thursday, April 30th, 2015 - No Comments »

Since receiving the Challengers in 2008, this is the fourth consecutive year that the Tall Ships Youth Trust has taken part in the Rolex Fastnet Race.

For the Tall Ships Youth Trust, the Fastnet Campaign is the pinnacle of the years sailing as the yachts don’t just participate in the Fastnet and the challenge that it presents but the crews also compete against each other for the Tall Ships Youth Trust Fastnet Campaign trophy.

All four of the Challengers are taking part in the iconic race with the crews on board coming from various backgrounds. Few of the participants will not have raced before and little will have any sailing experience.

Challenger 1 – There is a crew of individuals with Mike Perham as their Mate on board. Mike Perham was the youngest person to sail single handed around the world in 2009. Mike will be using his extensive knowledge of offshore sailing to help train the crew and build their skills so they are able to compete in this infamous race, led by professional and experienced crew.

Challenger 2 – The Skipper and Mate are joined by a crew from First Class Sailing, this is also their fourth year taking part in the Fastnet with the Tall Ships Youth Trust.

Challenger 3 – The Tall Ships Youth Trust are proud to be entering an all-female, Girlguiding crew. Following their training weekend on board Challenger 3, the Girlguides said “We’ve experienced information overload and lots of bruises but have all had a fantastic time. Can’t wait for our first race next weekend.”

Challenger 4 – This yacht consists of another team of individuals and 6 crew members from Bespoke Yacht Services.

Tim Law, Marketing and Operations Direction commented “Training weekends are underway and our crews are enthusiastic about heading to the start line for this new challenge. With all four Challenger yacht involved, the crew are helping to support even more disadvantaged Young People to get on board and come sailing with the Trust”.
