We've inspired over 30,000 young people across the UK since 1971 through an offshore adventure on our iconic flagship. We believe that sail training, being part of a team and pulling together to navigate Britain's coastal waters gives them an environment where they can find new confidence, and reach new heights at sea until the mid-21st century.
We’ve raised £4.8 million for the new flagship!
We’ve named our new ship TS Royalist.
We hope the new flagship will keep the legacy of old flagship alive for future generations!
The ship will take 900 cadets a year on an offshore voyage they will never forget.
The build is underway with the hull blocks now together and the ship taking form on the slip. Internal systems are being installed with hull painting imminent before integration with the GRP superstructures. Final drawings for internal fit our are in place and fabrication of the first internal bulkheads and accommodation has begun.
The rig is being built in Hampshire and the masts are due for stepping in Spain late autumn before launch.
With the help of the crew we’re looking forward to completion of sea trials, acceptance and delivery of the new ship ready for 2015 sail training season.
