A young sailor will be holding a pop-up greeting card sale to raise funds to take part in a transatlantic tall ship race with an female crew.
Juliet Fynn learnt to sail at Stubbers Adventure Centre, in Upminster, when she was a pupil at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, in Hornchurch, and has previously won gold for Havering at the London Youth Games Sailing Regatta.
The 18-year-old, from Romford, will hold the sale inside Upminster Library, on Saturday, from 10.30am to 4pm, with the aim of raising a total of £900 to take part in her dream voyage, which has been organised by the Rona Sailing Project.
The transatlantic regatta kicks off on April 13 and will take Juliet, who will be a part of the RONA II crew, from Greenwich all the way to Quebec, in Canada, by way of Spain, Bermuda and the USA.
Eight greeting card companies have donated stock for the sale and with Mother’s Day coming up it’s the perfect excuse to pick up a gift whilst helping Juliet to fulfil her ambition.
