We're still collecting donations

On the 29th December 2020 we'd raised £4,666 with 44 supporters in 42 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted our business. We have not been able to provide any trips or racing since March 2020. 

We started the business in 2019 to offer amazing sailing and racing experiences on this fantastic race yacht. Telefonica Black originally competed in the 2008/2009 Volvo Ocean Race and we have enjoyed welcoming you all aboard. We love getting everyone involved in all aspects of sailing her and everything we earn goes back into improving and maintaining Telefonica Black.

We had an amazing 1st year and have provided our crews with some unforgettable experiences and like everyone we are looking forward to getting back on the water when it is safe to do so. 

Unfortunately due to not being able to trade and high fixed costs we are now looking at other sources of funding to help us get her back on the water ready for the season in May 2021.

We are looking for funding to help with the ongoing maintenance and to purchase new sails.

In collaboration with NautiGal we have a range of bags made from Telefonica's heritage sail wardrobe. If you have sailed with us on Telefonica, these were the very same sails you used. It was our aim to upcycle/recycle and reuse as many of our old sails as possible as well as supporting small business in the process. NautiGal can customise your bag to order and we think they are fantastic products. 

As well as NautiGals stunning bags we are also putting our crew clothing range on sale. We have our branded performance race tops, polo shirts and caps. (see pics below) 

We are excited about the season hopefully starting again in May 2021 and we have many great races, trips and experiences planned. If you would like join us on the water, check the schedule and you can book through the website

Thank you for visiting our page and a big thank you to Solent LEP. We are applying for match funding through Solent LEP to help us reach our goals and carry on making big boat sailing accessible to all.
