Who might we share information with?  For how long? 

We do not share your information with any other organisation for any purpose.

The medical questionnaire completed before sailing with us will be seen by the professional skipper/mate responsible for your wellbeing when on board.  These forms are passed to the Trust as soon as your event is completed and the medical/next of kin information provided will not be retained in any format.  Should you wish us to retain it for a limited period of 12 months (in case you plan to sail again within this time frame) you will be asked for permission to do so.
