Sail Training in the UK has been severely disrupted this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of our members have yet to reopen their doors to the public as residential trips still can’t go ahead.

We believe that outdoor education including Sail Training will be a vital tool for young people to rediscover their confidence, social skills and sense of fun post pandemic.
