Turn to Starboard was set up three years ago and believes sailing has a therapeutic effect on those affected by military operations. The charity helps military personnel affected by operations to gain sailing qualifications to help start new careers in the marine industry. They also offer sailing trips to Service families who have been affected by operations to spend time together on a skippered yacht.
Turn to Starboard Corporate Relations Coordinator, Marie Harris, said: “We are delighted to be entering into a partnership with the International Powerboat Race Club. We look forward to building on our relationship in order to promote our service of supporting veterans affected by operations and helping many find a brighter future.”
