JM BUSHA 54 is proud to announce our new student Peace Ambassador Sailors for Peace and Unity in Africa.
The sailing team is made up of four students from Wits and two from the University of Pretoria (Tuks). They are Ryan Robinson, Emma Clark, Tawanda Chikasha and Hearn Johnson (Wits) and Michaela Robinson and Jonathan Ham (Tuks).
The Cape to Rio is a 50-year-old race beginning in Cape Town, where sailors embark on a journey across the South Atlantic Ocean to Rio de Janeiro, where the race is concluded.
Selecting this team was a no brainer for JM BUSHA 54 as this is a committed team comprised of both male and female members.
This is what we really want to promote, social cohesion between gender groups.
The team have also signed the JM BUSHA 54 Peace Pledges and have taken on the JM BUSHA 54 peace ambassadorship. They will be actively promoting peace and unity and driving this message in their various universities.
JM BUSHA 54 is excited about this partnership and we are looking forward to the race which will happen in January 2020.
