Checking in with the kids of the America’s Cup Endeavour Programme
The Endeavour Programme aims to take sailing to communities involved with the America’s Cup, which was first launched in Bermuda, and newly introduced to New York City.
Nic Douglas, Adventures of a Sailor Girl, commented, “I was lucky enough to chat with a group of kids, before they set sail on the Colgate 26 with Offshore Sailing School. ‘Natalie,’ who was terrified about going sailing today… is now hooked and can’t wait to do it again!”
