We are delighted to announce our latest sponsor of the 2014 Tall Ships Challenge is The Blue Seafood Company, producers of the finest Westcountry crab.
Trevor Bartlett, MD of the company said: “As a Paignton boy born and bred and having had the privilege of sailing in the Tall Ships Race in 1972 I know how invaluable an experience like this could be to a young adult.
Having only recently learned of the opportunities offered to local young adults by Trinity we are really pleased to be able to support this adventure particularly as it a local charity supporting local people.
I’m sure once other companies like us get to hear and understand the charities purpose there will be no shortage of support”.
Toby Russell from Trinity added: “We are extremely grateful to Trevor and The Blue Seafood Company for their generous support which will directly enable deserving local young people to undertake this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
We have had lots of applications from young people for places at the international Tall Ships and following interviews later this week we look forward to announcing the successful candidates very soon”.
