Sail Training

A sail training voyage can be  a life changing experience. It is a  challenging and fun way to develop self-confidence. It provides a  structured,  secure, challenging  environment with defined boundaries and a clear common purpose.


Sail training teaches young people life skills to improve their employment prospects and broaden their horizons.  This includes learning teamwork & communication skills, decision making & planning skills, learning about resilience and respect as well as developing self-confidence, in a fun, adventurous and enjoyable setting.
