Funds raised at the very successful inaugural BBWP held in Cape Town last year were used to purchase an L26 sailing boat - named ‘Homero’ – now berthed at the False Bay Yacht Club and used for teaching practical sailing skills to the Lawhill Centre learners . As sailors all know, upkeep is expensive and part of the funds raised this year will be allocated to the maintenance of the boat.
