Contender is a Rival 32, skippered by our Development Director Geoff Crowley. On July 4th 2018, 4 volunteers will leave from Inverkip for a 1000 mile round trip to Rockall to raise funds for able2sail, a charity that gives people with disabilities the opportunity to go sailing.
The crew will sail almost non-stop in a route starting in the Clyde, round the Mull of Kintyre, a short stop at Barra to team up with other Rivals, then round Barra Head and west to Rockall. Rounding Rockall, they aim to sail north to the Butt of Lewis, a short stop in Stornoway and return to the Clyde. The trip may take about 10 days.
The team are hoping to raise some of the funds required to keep able2sail operating. Head to their website if you would like to find out more or make a donation : http://www.able2sail.org.uk/rockall. You can also track their progress: http://yb.tl/able2sail_2018
Good luck Geoff!
