The Sea Sanctuary is offering a ‘thank you’ to key workers – a free day sail on board their yacht Winter. Winter will be sailing the beautiful Cornish coastline and exploring the water ways around the Carrick Roads in September.

Sea Sanctuary are asking for nominations via their website.

Joe Sabien, CEO and founder of Sea Sanctuary, said:

As we move out of lockdown and towards the world moving forwards again, we recognise that for some, the experience has been absolutely exhausting. On this occasion, we are referring to the people who have been working tirelessly in our Cornish community to keep us safe; to help us, deliver essential supplies and work throughout the night. Whether this relates to volunteer police officers or regular police officers, postal workers, fire personnel, nurses, delivery drivers, medics, pharmacists or people working in shops, we want to reward some of them.

‘We do recognise that we can’t reward everyone, it would take a lifetime! But we can reward a few and we now ask YOU to help us to achieve this aim. Sea Sanctuary is keen to provide a water-based experience (sailing in local waters and a fine lunch) on our beautiful yacht, Winter, and we want to share this experience with some of the people YOU nominate.

‘So, who would you like to nominate for this reward and why?’

How can I Nominate Someone?

If you know a key worker in Cornwall that you think is deserving of one of the spots onboard Winter for a day sail, you can submit a nomination online under one of the following categories:

  • NHS staff

Nominations will remain open until Sunday 23 August 2020, and nominees will be announced on Friday 31 August 2020.  If your nominee is chosen, we will contact you by email for their details.

Sails will take place throughout September 2020
