Each crew member has committed to 45k in December 2016 and January 2017.

That’s 5 k a week in some of the coldest and bitterest training weeks.

In return, we are asking friends, family and collegues to sponsor 45 pounds towards this endevour.

We are using BT Donate to track this, as well as gather GiftAid etc.

This money goes towards a major refit program to get Rona 2 ‘Atlantic Ready’ – and which will keep her going for another 15 years. In addition, we have to fund the logistics of the race [feeding six hungry crews around the atlantic is no mean feat…].

Crew members and many more volunteers also commit to attend refit weekends to physically ‘do’ the work of refitting the yacht.
