My sincerest thanks to Sails Training International for their kind words recently. A lovely write-up on their website makes me incredibly proud to have had the pleasure of working with such a wonderful group of people.
Making up a large percentage of the regatta crew are 38 young people from Liverpool who have one thing in common – Jim Graves. Jim is passionate about getting young people to sea, and not just to learn to sail, but more importantly to learn about themselves. “Luckily for me, at the age of 16 I joined the Merchant Navy and left Liverpool for six years, sailing around the world twice. The difference that I could see in myself was amazing and made a huge difference to the rest of my life”.
