We discovered that capable, intelligent young people were not being exposed to the opportunities that science education could bring.
In parallel, we knew that America’s Cup sailing has a tremendous impact on young people drawn by the excitement of high-speed foiling yachts; we just had to join the dots.
We were inspired to set up the 1851 Trust charity, alongside the team, with the conviction that we could engage young people with the cutting edge technology developed in sailing.
It is a truly inspiring journey where sport and science meet, where adventure and excellence begins.
Patron, 1851 Trust
