We are raising money for the Alzheimer's Society as a charity close to both our hearts. We decided to compete in memory of our late grandparents, Jean Boorman, Jean White & Michael Jones, who were affected by Dementia. We hope to reduce the impact that Dementia has on individuals and families with your generous donations as well as use our platform to raise awareness of the disease.

We can't break these records or get to the start line without our generous sponsors and donors who we proudly display on our social media and websites. If you are interested in helping us by becoming a donor or sponsor, please get in touch. We also have a fundraising page below where anonymous or named donations can be made. Listed below is how your donations will help and what they will go towards.

 The team at Jeremy Rogers' boat yard will be watching your progress and wishing you every success. Raising money for Alzheimer's research is a worthy cause and one that we fully support. Go girls!

Major sponsorship and donations will go towards securing and insuring a yacht for our record-breaking race; as well as getting her race-ready and up to specification.

We have opened a dedicated fundraising page for our Alzheimer's Society donations so that by the time we reach the finish line in Plymouth, we have a huge cheque to give to a most worthy cause.

Your campaign donations continue to go towards equipping us with:

Vital safety equipment


Appropriate sailing clothing

Navigational charts

Marina fees

Boatyard costs

Equipment for the race

And More!


Thank you so much
