Young tenants to sail on a tallship with the Island Trust
8 Young tenants from Charter and Bron Afon Housing Associations will be undertaking a week’s sailing from Monday 5 October 2015, onboard the ‘Tectona’ Tallship. The ship will be operated and staffed by The Island Trust.
On the voyage, our young people will learn how to sail or improve their existing sailing skills and seamanship, including navigation and the use of the equipment on board the ship.
The destination will depend very much on weather conditions but the guest crew are involved in the decision as to where to sail. Some of this year’s voyages have reached the Isles of Scilly, Cawsand, Fowey, Falmouth, Salcombe, Dartmouth and the Channel Islands.
We hope that they will enjoy their time on board. There is nothing quite like the thrill and adventure of being at sea. Evening activities may include beach games and BBQ’s and they may even catch and eat their own supper. They will visit some beautiful places and they may see dolphins.
At the end of the week, the group will hopefully have earned a Royal Yachting Association certificate which will be presented before they leave.
