INSPIRING A NEW GENERATION
As a result some 8000 primary-aged school children in France and Switzerland were able to share their journey around the world through a series of ocean lessons and an Adventure Book.
In addition, the site also features the Out of the Classroom series. These texts are predominantly taken from the blogs that were written by Dona Bertarelli while she was racing onboard Spindrift 2.
“We would like to inspire children to believe that, with will power, persistence and mutual support, we can achieve the challenges that we set ourselves.”Dona Bertarelli & Yann Guichard
As the team prepares for its next attempt on the world’s most coveted record, the Jules Verne Trophy, sailing around the world non-stop, Spindrift for Schools will once again be ‘onboard’ with the team.
The Spindrift for Schools programme runs throughout the academic year, and while the highlight is of course the Jules Verne Trophy, new and updated lessons now sit alongside an updated Adventure Book.
