New CEO at Bermuda Sloop Foundation

The Bermuda Sloop Foundation has appointed Robin Hamill as CEO with immediate effect. Commenting on the appointment Chairman David Goodwin says, “We are thrilled to welcome Robin to the Sloop Foundation. Robin's knowledge of experiential education coupled with his fundraising abilities were key to him being selected. Changing the lives of youth in Bermuda is becoming more important for them to be able to sustain acceptable living standards.”

Hamill commented, “I am very excited to join the Sloop Foundation as CEO. The Foundation does an incredible job providing experiential education using the Spirit of Bermuda as a sailing classroom. I look forward to working with our donors, the community and our staff to continue to provide first class education to Bermuda's students.”

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.
