Inspiring a new generation of sailors is what the Sail and Motorboat Programme offered by the S.A.T.S General Botha Old Boys’ Association Bursary Fund (GBOBA BF) is all about.
Lawhill is most grateful to all those involved in the Bursary Fund for the incredible work being done to provide our students with valuable skills, while they are still at school. The efforts of volunteer Mentors as well as two of our alumni in preparing our youth for careers at sea are truly commendable.
As at the end of May, we have 18 qualified Day Skippers (SAMSA E-Class Under 9m).
