“Jay returned full of confidence, chat, and knowledge of sailing. Jay had ‘life’ back in his eyes. He enjoyed the whole experience. His highlight was the privilege of sailing a yacht with Ellen. He would love to sail again. He even cooked a lasagne on his own for his yachting crew (He never cooks!!) He was full of pride.”
- Mother of Jay, 16
“This is the first time I have been sailing, and I never thought it would be this good! I have really enjoyed the trip and learnt loads like how to tie knots, use the winches and hoist the sail. I would definitely come back again to see the friends I have made”
