Since 2016 DSY has been sponsoring this Scottish charity founded by Murray MacDonald who is himself on the autistic spectrum. It has been incredibly satisfying to see this charity go from strength to strength and to be able to offer young autistic persons the opportunity to go sailing in an understanding and supportive environment. Murray has recently received the “Point of Light” award from the UK government for his outstanding charitable contribution to the local community in Edinburgh. The charity competes at national events with their Hunter 707 and also offers cruises on their Colvic Victor “Confidence”.
The charity offers many sailing and social activities over the year, if you would like to get involved then please visit their website. www.autismonthewater.co.uk
