We are very grateful to WEST SYSTEM® International for their generous offer to provide extremely valuable support to our OC24 skiff build project, through materials sponsorship. 

Oarsome Chance is developing the OC24 skiff - a purpose built boat designed for us by Paul Fisher for our young people to build and row - and Wessex Resins have recognised the value of the project and will be supporting its development by providing an extensive range of WEST SYSTEM® products and other materials for the build; this will be a fantastic help in progressing the project.

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."

WEST SYSTEM® International have been developing and manufacturing high-quality epoxy products since 1981. During this time they have worked with a large range of organisations that demand specialist formulations, including the Ministry of Defence, London Underground, Bombardier and BAE Systems.

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."

The OC24 project will be followed by epoxycraft the online magazine which is the home of news, views and discussion on using epoxy in boat repair, maintenance and construction.
