The Sail for Life Fund was set up by the BOP Sailing Academy Trust to provide the opportunity for youth to experience the sport of sailing, irrespective of means or ability, and to create pathways and strategies to engage them in the sport for a lifetime. 

They achieve this in two ways: by providing sailing gear available at a low cost to groups and individuals, and through various carefully targeted support programmes for sailors.
Sailing brings out fantastic qualities in young people:
• Tenacity
• Self reliance
• Discipline
• Learning to look after things
• Planning and preparation
• Respect for others
• Respect for the marine environment
• Fitness
• Concentration
• Initiative

Setting up the Sail for Life Fund was a means to secure an income stream for the Trust for the future.
