Why Donate

By donating today you will be contributing to the sustainability of our seafaring legacy, helping us connect New Zealanders to our iconic sailing yachts Steinlager 2 and Lion New Zealand, through school curriculum and leadership programmes, group charters and racing experiences.  Ensuring these boats continue to inspire and education the next generation.

The programmes delivered on board our vessels is hugely beneficial to those who participate. We  work with  young New Zealanders to deliver our youth programmes that bring to life key values such as leadership, teamwork, communication, determination, courage and respect.

Our programmes and ongoing vessel maintenance is partly funded by programme fees, racing experiences and community or corporate charters, however for most of the funds required to keep the yachts at the high level of safety and functionality and to run our organization - we rely on your generosity.
