Provident under sail

Come and see Provident in Dartmouth…

Trinity Sailing is inviting you to hop on board Provident for an open evening, tomorrow, ahead of this year’s Dartmouth Royal Regatta.

Members of the public are being invited to step on to the 1924-built heritage vessel, where office staff will also be available to answer any questions you may have about the boat, or the day-to-day operations of the organisation.

Trinity’s Director, Toby Russell, will also be present, inviting people to learn about the life-changing work, carried out by the Foundation, benefiting hundreds of young people, up and down the country, each year.

He said: “Provident is in Dartmouth for the Regatta and we thought, while she is in town, it would be nice to throw open her doors to the general public and invite people to have a look around one of our boats.

“Either me, one of the team from our office, or a member of Provident’s crew, will make you feel welcome, give you a tour of the vessel and tell you what she has to offer. You will also be able to see firsthand the heritage conservation work carried out to the vessel through the ‘Provident Project‘ which is funded through Heritage Lottery Fund.”

To take a look around Provident, all you have to do is head to Dartmouth’s town pontoon on Wednesday, August 28, between 6pm and 8pm.

The evening will also give people the chance to find out more about opportunities to go on sailing on Provident, and the other boats in the Trinity fleet.
