The experience of being out on the water is like no other. Having fun, meeting new people or learning a new skill. Whatever your reason we want to make it as easy as possible for you to get onboard.
With #boatgen you'll experience all the freedom of boating with none of the uncertainty of going it alone! We'll introduce you to a community of other young boaters who are just as passionate about the water as you are.
Boatfolk and the Andrew Simpson Foundation are working together to make #boatgen a reality.
We want to bring together young boaters and give you all the tools you need to start having fun afloat. From training for beginners to the opportunity to meet and inspire other young sailors, our goal is to give you all the skills and confidence you need to be a boater both on and off the water.
