THE SCHOOL BOAT

Let's make School Boat participate in the EDHEC Sailing Cup
The School Boat Project is a humanitarian project which defends equal opportunity all over the world. This project aims at:

  • Gathering school supplies during the EDHEC Sailing Cup and loading a boat with them.
  • Making the boat go to a developing country at the end of the EDHEC Sailing Cup and provide school supplies to the local population. 

This project is possible thanks to the help of Schola Africa association, which will take the delivery of the school equipments in charge.

For the next edition of the EDHEC Sailing Cup, the School Boat want to land in Senegal. This action is due to focus on promoting values such as education, equality, sharing and respect.

THE EDHEC SAILING CUP

From April 5 to 13, 2019, in Olona Harbor - Les Sables d'Olonne, FRANCE
The EDHEC Sailing Cup is the leading student sporting event in Europe. It gathers every year 3,200 participants coming from the most prestigious universities (UCLA, Cambridge, LSE, Bocconi…) from more than 23 countries (USA, UK, Poland, Germany, Turkey…). The heart of the event is the regatta, where a 230 boat-fleet compete during one week of tactical and coastal races. This year the 51th edition will be held from April 5 to 13 in Les Sables d’Olonne.

In a regatta, crew members have to trust, respect and assist each other.

Thus, the EDHEC Sailing Cup seems to be a perfect event to show to the world that it is possible to be unified to defend equal opportunities and education in developing countries.
