Rona Sailing Project

Ajax has a long relationship with the Rona Sailing Project which started in the 1960s taking disadvantaged youths from the London area to the sea.

The Rona Sailing Project, (formerly The London Sailing Project) is one of the oldest Sail Training organisations in the UK, established for over 50 years. Since it began, it has taken over 20,000 young people to sea and given them the experience of a lifetime, greater self-confidence and a new perspective on the world.

Apart from a dedicated full-time team of just four staff, the Project has 400 volunteers, who are Skippers, Mates, Watch Officers and Watch Leaders. Their active support enables them to touch the lives of a large and disparate group of people, all of whom, in their own way, significantly benefit from an experience at sea.
