PBO Magazine and youth charity Oarsome Chance have joined forces to complete the build of PBO’s latest ‘Project Boat’ – a Secret 20 racing gaff cutter.
The professional boat building team at Oarsome Chance, who work with disadvantaged young people to provide them with practical skills to change their futures, is building the Secret 20 sailing boat (now named Harvey in honour of one of Oarsome Chance’s valued volunteers) and readers of PBO magazine have been following with interest the progress of the project in detailed articles in PBO’s monthly magazines.
Thanks to the dedication of the Oarsome Chance boat builders and the kind support of project partners, Harvey will be completed to a fantastic standard and to an impressive spec and will be up for auction to raise vital funds for the charity.
The PBO Project Boat auction will be online – you can preview the auction here: www.jumblebee.co.uk/pbo-project-boat, where you can also check out other exciting auction lots available, including Alex Thomson Racing merchandise and a Dream Yacht Charter luxury sailing day.
