JM BUSHA 54 Sailing Team is a student comprised sailing team that is setting its sights on competing and winning the prestigious Cape2Rio Yacht Race.
The team was formed in December of 2018 by a group of university students, which were already actively competing in the sailing space.
The team members have competed in National Championships, World Championships and a range of other national and international sailing regattas – giving the youth team the right tools and skillset to challenge for the Cape2Rio Yacht Race.
The team and each of its members are fully committed to peace and unity in Africa. Peace and unity have all played a part in each team members life as an individual as well as getting the team together to embark on a sailing campaign of this magnitude. With each of us being students at different universities from different backgrounds and even different countries, we see this as the cornerstone for any successful undertaking that involves a diverse group of individuals working towards a common goal.
The team is genuinely committed to pledging the JM Busha 54 Peace pledge and taking the call to action to spread the message as individuals and as the team in which we are willing to be ambassadors of the initiative beyond the tenure of the campaign but in our everyday lives. Beyond spreading the message we are committing to taking action by getting communities and groups of people to also commit to peace and unity in Africa and believe in and act on the Peace Pledge as we will be doing ourselves through a number of ways we have listed.
