Sailing event for veterans of the Armed Forces, organised by Supporting Wounded Veterans charity. Three days of sailing and training around the Solent with opportunities for the public to visit a boat, receive information and speak with veterans in the various harbours around the Solent. A regatta for veterans on the fourth day with an information station on shore at Cowes. Veterans will take part in the Round the Island Race on 25th June with the land crew providing updates and information for the public. We aim to work with local radio and television stations throughout the week and will be posting our stories on social media.
Volunteers are being recruited to act as sailing buddies to veterans and as shore crew.
