So many people and organizations have had a hand in getting Dawn sailing again. Without this support over the years, Dawn would only be a memory, thankfully she is still in market of making memories .....
To Griff Rhys Jones for his continued support as our Patron
Dawn is proud to be a Dunkirk Little Ship
The Dawn Sailing Barge Trust Ltd
Ltd Co.No. 3240596
We are pleased to have been awarded £1000 towards replacing standing rigging
Helped to make it possible
by way of funding to
bring her back to Maldon. Dawn is now back in her berth where she was launched in 1897
A grant of £675,080
went a long way towards
bringing Dawn back to life
Their support helped restore
the skipper's cabin. Now we are so pleased to have been awarded £5000 towards the
goal of getting Dawn tiller steered once again.
A grant of £5000 has meant that Dawn is once again tiller steered
