John Merricks Sailing Trust
We are excited to announce that John Merricks Sailing Trust will be supporting OnBoard over five years.
As the Official Charity Partner, the JMST will donate 50 (10 boats/boards per year) single-handed junior pathway boats and boards (Topper, Optimist, Laser 4.7, Bic Techno 293OD) to promising OnBoard sailors, providing them with the opportunity to progress their skills and continue to participate in the sport.
The boats will be gifted to promising youngsters who display enthusiasm, drive, talent and commitment to the sport and who may not ordinarily have the opportunity or financial backing to achieve their goals.
Each year, at least one young sailor will be selected from each of the nine RYA Zones and Home Countries giving them two years of exclusive use of their own boat donated by the Trust. After which the boats will be returned to the sailor’s original OnBoard club so other young OB sailors can continue to benefit in the future and progress into club and regional racing activities. The boat will be owned by the OnBoard club throughout the loan period.
To be considered:
1.      OnBoard sailors must compete at one of the RYA Zone Championships on 26-27 September (and state that they are from OnBoard).  
2.      After the event complete an application form and return to RYA OnBoard
Application forms will be available at the RYA Zone Championships and will also be available online shortly.
