Time Over Distance Volume 12: John Holt - GCA Scaramouche Sailing Trust
For the 12th edition of the RORC Time Over Distance Series we will be revealing the awe-inspiring work of the Scaramouche Sailing Trust. The Greig City Academy in North London started the sailing project in 2016 and since then, hundreds of inner-city kids, as young as 13, have fallen in love with sailing. A select few have raced as teams in qualifying races and the last two editions of the Rolex Fastnet Race, finishing on both occasions.
We all have an affinity with the sea. Every sailor has felt the forces of nature and the experience becomes compulsive. Witnessing young people getting this compulsion is uplifting and inspirational.
For a live interview by Louay Habib with Greig City Academy’s Jon Holt and members of GCA Sailing Club - the first inner-city London school to have its own sailing club - tune in on Friday 19th June at 1700 BST at www.facebook.com/RoyalOceanRacingClub/
