West System International (WSI) has provided an extensive range of WEST SYSTEM® products and other materials to ground-breaking new charity, Oarsome Chance, for use in its OC 24 Skiff build project.

Oarsome Chance works to bring about change for disadvantaged young people in the Portsmouth, Gosport and Havant areas by using the powerful incentive of sport in combination with vocational training. As part of its work, the charity is developing the OC 24 Skiff – a purpose-built boat designed for it by Paul Fisher for the young people to build and then row. West System International is delighted to be involved with the build project through materials sponsorship.

Paul O'Grady, Oarsome Chance founder and Chair of Trustees expressed his thanks on behalf of the Oarsome Chance team, "I cannot thank West System International enough on behalf of our local youngsters for their very generous donation of materials for the build of our first OC 24 Skiff. The OC 24 is a very exciting project for us all."

Hamish Cook from West System International said, "We are pleased to be involved and look forward to seeing the OC 24 Skiff in the water helping to have a positive influence on young people's lives."

Epoxycraft (epoxycraft.com), the online magazine for all things epoxy, which is published by West System International, will be following the OC 24 project.
