Back in 2017 a crew from inn-city London competed in and completed the Rolex Fastnet Race becoming the first comprehensive state school to do so. In 2019 they went and did again, making it back-to-back campaigns.
For the 2019 campaign, the crew were followed by a camera team and a documentary has been put together for CBBC My Life: Making Waves.
Tune in tomorrow night (Tuesday 7 April at 5:30) to watch, it's a truly inspirational story and shows that sailing really can change your life.
This is a project supported by several Merlin Rocket sailors who have donated their time, effort, equipment and skills. If you would like to help or get involved in any way please contact me.
