Eight yachts and their skippers donated their time on a grey misty morning and assembled at The Poole Yacht Club ready to take 10 Julia's House families out for a fantastic sailing experience.
The fleet departed the calm of the Haven at around 11am and set sail for an exciting trip out to see ‘Old Harry’ and what remains of his wife.
After an hour or so sailing, they stopped at Redend Point in Studland Bay to enjoy picnic aboard. After socialising, the fleet returned to Poole, allowing some family members, including the children, to ‘take the helm’ or trim the sails.
Many thanks Poole Yacht Racing Association and the volunteer crew for their time providing this an exciting and rewarding experience for our families!
