Nab Tower Pursuit 2019
Bombardier III is taking part in this pursuit to the Nab in support of a Charity that supports young people who have hit hard times. Step by Step provides them with accommodation, mentoring and personal development opportunities. The objective is to give young people in this situation self confidence and equip them for a fulfilling future.
Step by Step young people will crew the yacht and will train for the event beforehand.Whilst this challenge is not a race, It is an opportunity to test the mettle of the crew and the performance of the yacht against the other entries in the conditions of the Channel on the day.
Nab Tower Pursuit is a fine chance to promote the work of Step by Step as a local charity in Gosport, Havant and Aldershot and support their work with young people. Click here to donate on the Just Giving website.
