Over the years we have worked with the Ellen MacArthur Trust (EMC Trust) to provide Rib charters for young people recovering from cancer once a week throughout the summer. Our Ribs collect the group each week, from a pre-chosen meeting point, off the Ellen MacArthur sailing boats and gives them a fast-paced experience blasting across the Solent! Safety of the group is always our paramount concern and our skippers take the upmost care to ensure the group have a fun and exciting experience whilst keeping the boat at a comfortable pace for everyone on board.
We often get feedback from the team at EMC Trust telling us that our Rib rides have been the highlight of the group’s week, which means the world to us. Solent Rib Charter provides the boats but our skippers are the real heroes here, each giving up their time to take these groups out free of charge. Without our team of awesome skippers, we wouldn’t be able to provide as many charters as we do, they deserve the biggest shout out!
With all this said, sadly due to the Covid-19 pandemic the trust won’t be taking any of our Rib rides this year. However we and i’m sure our skippers look forward to starting up again with the Trust next year once the pandemic has past us and they are able to join us back on the water.
