Autism on the Water is growing every day! Our charity is now in the early stages of exciting new developments to bring further awareness of Autism and help get autistic people to access sailing.
With the charity now having acquired full ownership of our Hunter 707, we are planning another exciting year of racing the boat at various events to spread the word of Autism and get our name out there. A brand new event for us this year is the Bangor Town Regatta in Northern Ireland!
This event is being hosted by the Royal Ulster Yacht Club and members of the club have asked us if we would attend their biannual regatta that is held on the waters of Belfast Lough. We have already had some fantastic support from the RUYC who really are doing their best to support us in attending this event.
We are getting the boat couriered by road from Scotland to Ireland via the ferry and we are planning to be in Ireland a few days early to allow us to prepare the boat and take some local autistic children for short sails around Bangor and show the people of this beautiful seaside town what we do and how sailing can benefit autistic people.
Any contribution big or small to help us with our adventure to this wonderful regatta is much appreciated. Your support can help from entry fees to courier fees and ferry fees and as such by helping us, you are helping other autistic people and their families by allowing us to raise awareness of our story through sailing.
Our target is £2000 and anything over that will be used to help provide support towards costs of a sailing activity in Ireland for an Autistic individual based in Bangor.
