PRLog - Nov. 24, 2011 - Horizon Yacht Charters has announced details of its involvement in inviting a group of operational casualties from the Household Cavalry Regiment to their base in the British Virgin Islands.  The soldiers, from the Windsor-based Regiment in the UK have all been seriously wounded in action whilst serving in Afghanistan and are now in the process of rehabilitating from their injuries.

The soldiers will be accompanied by the Regimental Medical Officer and two other members of the Regiment who are qualified sailing instructors, however most of the crew have never sailed before.  The Medical Officer, Surgeon Lieutenant-Colonel Jeremy Lewin stated that “This trip provides a great opportunity for the soldiers to realise that although their lives may have changed as a result of their injuries, there are still plenty of opportunities  for them and chances to take up new activities “

Andrew Thompson, Director of Horizon Yacht Charters is equally excited about the arrival of the soldiers in December “We are honoured to be able to assist in a small way with the rehabilitation of the soldiers. We are looking forward to meeting them and hope that this trip will not only help them, but also give them a lifelong interest in sailing and a desire to return to the British Virgin Islands many times in the future to hone their sailing skills”        
                                                                             
The trip is being supported by the charities Help for Heroes and the Household Cavalry Operational Casualties Fund.  Further details can be found at www.operationalcasualtiesfund.co.uk
