[p]In memory of René who tragically died from depression by suicide in 2017 aged 22.[/p][p]Our crew of novice sailors have challenged themselves to take part in a Trans-Atlantic yacht race in memory of their friend and to raise awareness and funding for suicide prevention. [/p][p]René was the most wonderful, loving and beautiful person. He was kind, thoughtful, diplomatic and wise with a glorious sense of humour. He was incredibly intelligent and an ambitious young man. René had a huge effect on a lot of people. The love that so many people felt for René will live on in our memories and the steps we take to save other lives now. We shall cherish forever his incredible smile and we are forever unbelievably proud of René, the most loving son, brother and friend.[/p][p]This will be a first ocean crossing passage for the crew while at the same time facing the challenges of competing against touch racers in an ocean race. This is an adventure of a lifetime as the crew experience the rolling Atlantic swells, the squalls of rain and winds to 30kts gusts and the thrill of racing around the clock for 16 days. It is more than just racing though, it’s about arriving in Saint Lucia, knowing we have achieved something amazing in René's memory, crossing an ocean on a small sailboat.[/p]
