What is the #boatgen ambassador scheme?

As part of our #boatgen campaign we’re looking for ambassadors who share our belief that young people can benefit from getting out on the water. We want role models who understand the value of sailing and watersports and are passionate about sharing their love of these sports, as well as looking after the environment that makes these sports possible.

As an ambassador your role will be to inspire a community of young people to experience the freedom, challenges and amazing opportunities that come with getting on the water. As part of our network of ambassadors you’ll be the face and voice of #boatgen, becoming an important part of a grassroots movement united in making sailing and watersports accessible to all.
