Flagship Bursary Appeal


Hear from POC Robbins about his time racing in tall ships


help young people flourish 

With your help we can raise money  to help young people experience the thrill of  being at sea with an offshore voyage on our new flagship.   We want to raise £500,000 to support cadets on board and pay for essential equipment. 

Sail training and being part of a team that pulls together to navigate Britain's coastal waters offers an environment to explore fantastic life skills like communication and leadership, as well as inspire confidence to give them some extra help in getting a head start in life.

Our new flag ship will take over 30,000 young people to sea over the next 40 years. With your help we can give more young people the chance to realise their potential and build fantastic memories that will last a lifetime.
