Comments from our guests
I really enjoyed the history of it all and the fact we passed close by home and Carrickfergus Castle

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.
