Around and Around is the place to be....
The inspiration behind The Raymarine Lively Lady Project has now developed into a new charity, called Around and Around. The new charity aims to pick up where The Raymarine Lively Lady Project finished - the graduates from this project are now leading the way, acting as mentors to a new group of young people, who in their turn will move on to become mentors themselves!
Lively Lady's future with Around and Around has now been secured and the charity is launching an appeal to raise funds for a major restoration programme - after which they aim to sail her round the world again. In the meantime, they are continuing to work with young people using their other yacht, Robertson's G.
