Princess Anne was met by Shaun Pascoe, Founder of Turn to Starboard, who is also a Band of Brother. Shaun led the tour of the Turn to Starboard offices.

The relationship between TTS and H4H means that beneficiaries can take part in sailing courses as art of their recovery. The fact that it was founded as in run by an H4H beneficiary makes the relationship even more special.

Upon completion of the tour of the offices and facilities, the Princess Royal was taken to Pendennis Marina  for a tour of Spirit of Falmouth where she presented two former Royal Marines (both BoBs) with their Yacht Masters certificates after taking a course with TTS.

Turn to Starboard is one of our partnership charities, H4H have helped to fund courses that our beneficiaries can participate in with TTS
