For the past 50 years the Outward Bound clinker built cutters have been sailing the waters of the Queen Charlotte Sound. They have been instrumental in helping over 50,000 New Zealanders unlock their potential. As these boats are now reaching the end of their lives, we need your help to keep the tradition alive so that the next 50,000 New Zealanders have the same opportunity.
The Endeavour II and Resolution were both built in 1975, the Rotorongatai in 1990 and due to rot, are becoming expensive to maintain. The new cutters will be modelled on the recently rebuilt diagonally plyed fibre-glass Matahorua, so the look of the traditional cutter will be maintained, but their capability and strength improved. We aim to replace one cutter each year in 2012, 2013 and 2014. The cost estimate is $200,000 per cutter.
We have set up a separate Trust account for all donations to be received. Donations can be made by using this form. and sending it to PO Box 25274, Panama Street, Wellington 6146.
Thank you for your support!
