The Bounty Project

To enable young and disadvantaged people to have the opportunity to experience Bounty's End, the replica boat from the C4 series, Mutiny.

by Conrad Humphreys in Plymouth, Devon

We did it
On 13th May 2018 we successfully raised £12,730 with 25 supporters in 49 days

Our aim is create a fantastic "living history" programme for young people to have the opportunity to learn about and experience first-hand one of the most remarkable survival stories in British maritime history. In 1789, Captain William Bligh, along with eighteen loyalists, were cast adrift in a tiny open boat after the infamous Mutiny on the Bounty. Bligh, together with his crew managed to navigate over 4000 miles across the South Pacific Ocean to safety, surviving on a few meagre rations and just a little rum!

Professional skipper, Conrad Humphreys, joined Channel 4 star, Ant Middleton (SAS Who Dares Wins) and eight crew members to recreate the voyage, which was broadcast by Channel 4 in April 2017. After the series aired, Conrad secured the boat and launched the Bounty Project in partnership with The Island Trust, a charity that provides life-enhancing, residential and day-sailing activities for young people with special needs, disabilities, and those experiencing hardship and deprivation.

We are now preparing Bounty’s End for more adventures and would like you to be part of the story.  With your pledge, we will be able to offer schools across Plymouth and the South West UK the opportunity to have their very own Mutiny Experience. In return for your support, we've got some fantastic rewards including some signed Mutiny merchandise and the chance for you to experience your very own micro-adventure onboard Bounty's End.  

Your pledge of support will enable:

  • Bounty's End to visit schools across Plymouth and the SW
  • Production of educational materials and content for local public events
  • Historical voyages for young people to experience sailing a traditional boat
  • Visits to local historical festivals and public events
  • Boat maintenance and logistics to support the Bounty Project

"The children experienced what it was like to be on that boat 200 years ago and what was really wonderful is that we had children from the age of four to eleven absolutely captivated by the story" 

Vanessa Harris, Yealmpton Primary School Teacher

How we plan to spend the target funds raised during this crowdfunder campaign:


Crowdfunding helps us achieve our goals and you get to choose some fab rewards. If we manage to go over our target amount of £10,000, we will be able to provide some additional experiences and visits to schools and colleges beyond Plymouth and the South West UK. 

So watch the film, choose your reward, make a pledge and join us on the water for your very own #mutinyexperience
