Gosport Charity Pursuit
The 2018 Gosport Charity Pursuit is set to be hold on Saturday 16th June; the event is an amateur, points-scoring sailing event from Gilkicker point to the Nab tower and back. This fun, family-friendly day concludes with an evening BBQ and prizes presented at the Hornet Sailing Club. This Charity Pursuit intends to raise funds for Gosport Marine Scene’s youth development programme ‘Gosport Marine futures’ in which bursaries are provided for 10 local school children (from 15 to 19) to take part in a series of sail training activities and local marine industry ‘introductions’. The aim of the ‘Futures’ programme is to encourage and expose the local school leavers to the opportunities for career choices in the local marine industry. At the end of the programme, work experience opportunities with local businesses is provided. Find out more about the Pursuit.
