NCBA – National Community Boats Association

NCBAOnce again the NCBA has come to the rescue of Gutless Kayaking. This year the NCBA are providing the use of their boat, Merlot, for the entire 32 day trip! This is great news for Justin, since Merlot will be his medical centre and bedroom.

Community boating organisations provide access to and services on the UK’s waterways for the benefit of their local community. They often work with youth and other community based groups in addition to individuals and may provide specific services for disabled, disadvantaged or otherwise excluded people in our society such as those on low incomes or from minority groups.

The aim of these organisations is much more than just access to a leisure facility. It could be social inclusion, education, rehabilitation (health or offending) and issues of wider community cohesion. They are usually charitable in nature and often registered charities. They are predominantly voluntary organisations themselves relying on donations, fund-raising and sponsorship from within their operating area.
