Commenting on the appointment Chairman David Goodwin says, “We are thrilled to welcome Robin to the Sloop Foundation.

The Bermuda Sloop Foundation has created a purpose-built sail training vessel which evokes the seagoing traditions of Bermuda while providing a safe, effective, and comfortable platform for our youth. ‘Spirit of Bermuda' is a National icon which symbolizes our maritime heritage. The sail training vessel's primary focus is a five-day learning coastal expedition programme for third year Middle School Students. This world class structured curriculum focuses on experiential learning, essential social and emotional skills, social studies and STEAM all imbedded in the cultural and historical significance of Bermuda.
