The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge went head to head in The King’s Cup on Thursday 8 August. Our charity has been selected as a beneficiary of the inaugural sailing regatta launched by Their Royal Hignesses to raise awareness and funds for eight of their patronages. As our 30th anniversary patron, HRH The Duke of Cambridge has invited us to compete for the historic trophy first presented by King George V at Cowes’ Royal Yacht Squadron in 1920. 

The King's Cup went to Tusk and their ambassador, Isle of Wight-born Bear Grylls. Our crew, led by historian Dan Snow,  sailed through to an incredible second place. We’re honoured to have also competed against Child Bereavement UKCentrepoint, Action on AddictionPlace2Be, the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, and The Royal Foundation in connection with Her Royal Highness’s work on Early Years to raise awareness and funds for all of our causes.
