Project aim

Cardiff University has qualified to represent Wales in the Student Yachting World Cup, We are in need of £3000 funding to Give Wales a chance at glory.

About the project

Qualification for this event was held in Portsmouth where the team received the Welsh trophy that was awarded by Her Royal Highness Princess Anne. Early on in the event, the team faced some damages that forced a retirement from one day of racing, but after that pulled out some decent results and managed to maintain the lead as the top Welsh boat.

Last year Cardiff University went to the Student Yachting World Cup and Managed to Place some impressive results and won the la Rocehlle Cup which is awarded to the winner of the last race! This Year the team is looking for a chance to go to france and bring back more trophies for Wales!

Teams from all around the world compete in this event including representatives of USA, Canada, Italy, France, japan, and England amongst others. It would be a huge shame if wales went unrepresented due to a lack of funding. 

Any amount you can give would be a huge help to our team!
