Trinity are delighted to welcome Darthaven Marina as a Tall Ships Challenge sponsor.
The aim of the Tall Ships Challenge is to provide 12 deserving young people with a life changing voyage which is being made possible by the generous support of local businesses, the latest of which is the Kingswear-based Darthaven Marina.
Melanie Holman, the Manager of Darthaven Marina, said:
“We are very pleased to be supporting a young person from the area. This will be a wonderful opportunity for this person to get experience of being at sea, especially on such a splendid boat as Leader.
The Holman family have had an interest in Brixham for many years as they owned the Upham’s yard from the 1950’s until the 1990’s. The yard carried out repairs to local wooden craft, built some trawlers and then yachts designed by Kim Holman such as the famous Twister.
It is so important to keep the younger generation interested in sailing and we are happy to help.”
