Posted by at 1:20 pm 0 Comment Print

Our Jubilee Yacht Appeal has featured in the August 2012 edition of Sailing Today:

A charity is looking to raise £60m in order to give the Queen the ultimate Jubilee gift – a new yacht. Her Majesty has not had a yacht since Britannia was decommissioned in 1997.

However, a new group, the Jubilee Yacht Appeal, has vowed to raise the funds to present her Majesty with a spanking new yacht by the end of the Jubilee year.

Elaine Skinner, founder of the appeal and CEO, explained: “We all fondly remember HMY Britannia, a Jubilee yacht dedicated to the Queen and her charities would be a celebration of her achievements and a reminder of what we can achieve as a nation when we all pull together.”

The group calculates that just £1 donation by each subject will raise the cash. www.jubileeyacht.org.uk.
