Fundraising – A long term Vision

We are working hard to connect people and the ocean for positive change. After several years of chartering, we need to plan for a boat of our own to provide a stable future. Your support for the next chapter of Sail Britain will allow us to plan our sailing programme with much more flexibility and develop collaborations with others further afield. It will provide us with a secure platform for inspiring people of all ages year-round, and for events for which chartering a boat would not be feasible. This will include curriculum-linked visits by school children while in port, and for workshops and cultural events in the off-season.

If you would like to support us, or know someone who would, please send us an email –

Any donations you make will be put to the very best use to make a real difference.

We want our funders to be part of our community and to share our objective to deliver a programme which champions the ocean and makes a positive difference to the lives of the people we engage, both on and off the water.

Why support us?

Sail Britain is a unique project. Our interdisciplinary approach to the cultural and environmental study of our oceans has enormous potential to continue to influence individuals and policy makers alike, but it needs a more secure future. As a social enterprise, we believe in the value of community and diversity to influence positive change, and we design our programmes to be as inclusive, supportive and educational as possible.

What will funding be used for?

Funds will be used to purchase the vessel, and to commission her with the necessary equipment and certification for our needs. This will require a significant upfront effort, but the boat will provide the necessary stability to facilitate our long term vision as the project grows. Sail Britain now has a proven track record as a self sufficient project with four successful years under our belt without external support. We have sailed with hundreds of people from the ages of 18 to 78, and have run projects of great diversity.

  • “I don’t think I’ve ever had such a great week away. We were immersed in nature, and could see the human impact on fragile ecosystems first hand, and I didn’t need to take a flight half way across the world to see it. If you haven’t checked out Sail Britain you should. They are running the most amazing conservation sailing trips.” – Laura Sanderson, Surfers Against Sewage
  • “Had the most incredible trip with Sail Britain. Such beautiful scenery and beautiful people too. Let’s all make those changes to save the ocean and not take for granted what we have.” – Steph Glavin
