INEOS Team UK’s America’s Cup sailor Neil Hunter, from the Isle of Arran, was recently on hand to inspire pupils in Falkirk. Neil, jumped onboard with pupils who were taking part in the Forth Valley College STEM week in partnership with INEOS Grangemouth.

During the week, pupils were given the opportunity to try sailing for the first time as part of INEOS’s national sailing initiative, Rebels Crew; which is taking sailing into Britain’s cities.

Neil, who was the youngest competitor at the last America’s Cup held in Bermuda in 2017 explained: ‘It was awesome to be back up in Scotland to see Rebels Sailing first hand, in this programme. Hopefully they learnt a lot! For many of them it was their first day sailing and I can definitely see some of these kids getting the sailing bug!’
