"This type of residential is a very effective tool in engaging young people to work as a team. Team-work is the key to success on the voyage because without it the boat would not move and the young people would not be able eat or keep their environment clean. Sailing encourages the young people to work together and take responsibility for their own action". Jas, London
Sail Training is a fun and exciting adventure. Sailing offshore as part of a team that is responsible for the running of the boat will open a whole new world of challenges, skills and discovery. You don’t need any previous sailing experience as the staff on board will teach you everything you need to know. You will meet new people and work together to set sails, steer, keep watch and even cook. Together you will meet the challenge of the sea.

The UK Sail Training fleet is made up of a large variety of boats, from huge square-riggers to small yachts, from 100 year old gaff cutters to modern round-the-world racing yachts. The common link to all of these is that you will be able to experience working, living and sailing together on an offshore adventure. You will need to take responsibility, communicate and work together to ensure a successful journey.
