We are very grateful to a number of organisations that have provided sponsorship. These contributions have allowed work to be done on Integrite, or for equipment and rigging to be replaced in order to keep her in the best possible condition for our crew. In particular, we would like to thank:
The Worshipful Company of Shipwrights – Has a strong philanthropic purpose and donates to maritime related causes, individuals, charities and companies.
The Gosling Foundation – Makes grants to organisations including those involved in amateur sport and young people. Their donation provided part of the funding for Integrite’s major refit that was completed in 2016.
George Eyre Foundation – Lyme Regis philanthropist, George Eyre, provided a grant to part fund Integrite’s major refit, undertaken in 2015/2016 by local Lyme boatbbuilder Gail McGarva.
SJL PrintMedia Ltd – provides sponsorship for young people in sport. They have kindly provided the funding towards a new main-mast prior to the 2016 contest, and a new set of oars in 2017/18.
The Astor Foundation – Awards grants in support of initiatives for sport and youth groups. A grant from the Foundation part-funded the ACGB crew training camp held in advance ofthe 2016 contest.
In addition, a number of individuals have offered practical help and advice to us and we would like to thank them for the expertise they have provided, and especially their time:
Adrian Noyes (Boatbuilder), Dick Phillips (Boatbuilder), Colin Henwood (Boatbuilder).
Finally, we would like to offer a huge thank you to Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, whose provision of launching and berthing facilities in Portland Harbour have allowed us to run our training camps since 2017 in the amazing environment of Portland Harbour.
