New stretch target

Our Stretch Target

£3000

What will I use the extra money for?

This extra money will allow us to travel to more events around world and have more coaching time at every training or event we go to. It will also mean we can spend more money on our boat to keep it at an Olympic standard which is essential to being competitive in the Olympic fleet. 

We are Rupert White, 20 and Nikki Boniface 21. We are part of the British Sailing Team campaigning for Rio de Janeiro 2016 and Tokyo 2020 Olympics in a new ground breaking class of sailing: 2 person mixed gender crew in a Nacra 17. It is the first mixed sailing class at the Olympics and is a brand new design providing an exciting new challenge. We are the youngest but the only long standing team within the Nacra 17 British squad having sailed together for 3 year. In 2013 we were the U21 champions at the World and European Championships. 

It is an expensive sport and recently the funding for the team got cut so we no longer have a coach, this is why we are looking for your support. Reaching our target would raise enough money to fund a coach.

Sadly, we always need more money as our sport is so expensive so if you would like to know more or get involved please contact us directly.

Thank you for taking time to have a look at our project!
