Robin Hamill, CEO of the Bermuda Sloop Foundation, said, “Partnering with Sargasso Sea made perfect sense when considering how best to showcase and share with the community our Spirit of Bermuda clothing and gift items.

“Given the heightened demand for at home delivery and contactless shopping during these times, Sargasso Sea makes reaching new and existing supporters, alumni, and donors easier and effortless. And, purchasing our merchandise online is a really easy way to support our youth programs.

“Many of Bermuda’s youth, as well as community and corporate groups, have had the opportunity to go on the Spirit of Bermuda, so now we can provide them with a memento of their experience, and their purchases will help keep the Spirit programs active.

“For many students who participate, it’s a life changing experience.”

The spokesperson said, “The mission of the BSF is to build resilience, character and education development through experiential learning on the Spirit of Bermuda. Character building, environmental stewardship, STEAM learning, teamwork and maritime training are just a few of the many themes students experience.

“Like many organizations this year, the BSF has had to change tack and adjust to the current climate yet remain focused and dedicated to their cause. Adding an online retail offering is a new way to engage with the community.”

Colin Rego, founder and CEO of Sargasso Sea, said, “We’re delighted to have the BSF onboard the Sargasso Sea app. Being a part of our youth’s development in an impactful way, such as supporting what the BSF does with these transformational experiences aboard the Spirit of Bermuda, is extremely important to us.

“What they are doing is crucial for our community, and it helps to build future leaders. We’re happy to support the BSF’s efforts and provide them with a platform via our mobile service delivery and online sales capabilities.”

The spokesperson said, “The Spirit of Bermuda collection includes polos, t-shirts [both short & long sleeved], vests, hats, canvas totes, umbrellas, and many other specialty gift items available for purchase.

“The Bermuda Sloop Foundation on the Sargasso Sea app is available now. Sales and deliveries are available Monday to Friday, 10.00am to 4.00pm. The Sargasso Sea mobile app is available for download in the App Store or Google Play, or through Sargasso’s website.
