The Scaramouche Sailing Trust is delighted to announce a new partnership with the DUAL Group.

"It is great to partner with DUAL, and wholeheartedly we thank them for their support" comments Jon Holt, founder of the Scaramouche Sailing Trust. "Darren Doherty, Commercial Director and Vice Chairman at DUAL has been an avid supporter of our project for a number of years, he's even been sailing on Scaramouche, so I am sure he can't wait to have another outing!"

DUAL is part of the Hyperion Group, an international insurance group with employee ownership at its heart, it operates in 38 territories and employs around 5,000 people.

Darren Doherty said: "I'm delighted we can support the Scaramouche Sailing Trust. The Trust does amazing work with some very talented young people and I know our employees at DUAL will also benefit from this partnership."

The support from DUAL will help the Scaramouche Sailing Trust continue the work they do which is to transform the lives of students from inner-city London through sailing. To build resilience, confidence and aspiration through sailing. To enable the students to learn and gain a level of selfresponsibility through sailing. To provide life-changing opportunities though sailing. "This would not be possible without the support of DUAL," comments Jon Holt.

During the Rolex Fastnet Race 2019, Kai Hockley, the youngest crew member of Scaramouche and in fact the race as a whole, was followed by a production company who will be airing a 30 minute documentary on 7th April at 1730 on CBBC called My Life Making Waves. This is a view of the race never seen before.
