The Bequia Youth Sailors depends completely on the generosity of its sponsors and supporters, as well as the time given by so many who help run the charity, train the young people and help in so many different ways.
If you would like to get involved and support the program, there are many ways you can help.
- Equipment : We are always looking for equipment for the boats and their crew. Eg. In the past people have donated torches, rigging, life jackets and even an outboard engine, so if you have sailing equipment you no longer need, or are updating, please contact the team and let them know.
