Who are Ahoy?

As regular readers will know Ahoy is Alexander Charles Associates charity of the year for 2023.

The Ahoy charity changes people’s lives through sailing and rowing. Their mission: to become a Flagship Learning Centre using the River Thames as a pathway to provide opportunities for the community and those at-risk, disadvantaged or with learning disabilities. Through sailing, rowing and related learning activities they break down social barriers, develop essential life skills, confidence and pride.

They achieve this through a variety of programmes designed to empower, upskill and support those who access the opportunities which Ahoy provides.

What is the Oarsome Challenge?

The Oarsome Challenge is a unique team-building event which takes place on the river Thames in London. There are two iconic routes: Meridian Pull (Chelsea Harbour to Greenwich) and the Barrier Challenge (Woolwich to Greenwich). Both routes are 8.5 nautical miles and offer the opportunity to experience some of London’s most iconic landmarks from a unique vantage point.

Whether you’ve rowed before or are a complete novice, you are most welcome to participate and all training, insurance and equipment will be provided. This is a unique way to experience team building, have fun, get fit and raise important funds for a vital charity. There are multiple dates available throughout the year, so why not book an event for your team and improve your communication skills and camaraderie.
