Working with young people

Not only is it a great opportunity to experience life outdoors, take in the sea air and get some exercise, we also promote healthy eating and work with the young people as they learn to prepare and cook healthy, nutritious and delicious meals from fresh ingredients.


Trinity’s vessels provide a unique learning and development setting. On deck everything is as it was when they were first launched — there are no modern mechanical aids, so group working skills based on effective communication and teamwork are central to the process. Below deck they have been fitted out for their modern role and are homely and reassuring. They are stable, safe working platforms in all sea conditions and just the right size to present a real challenge yet allow young people to really get to grips with sailing them. In this way they have a natural advantage over other types of vessel.


The core benefits derived from Trinity’s personal development courses based on sail training include:


  • Building confidence and self esteem
  • Discovering the extent on one’s own capabilities
  • Learning to live and work as part of a team
  • Making and sustaining positive relationships
  • Developing leadership and problem solving skills
  • Learning to show respect and earn it in return
  • Taking responsibility for one’s self and others
  • Utilising a range of life and social skills
  • Broadening personal horizons
  • Learning about healthy living
  • Understanding the rewards of effort and change
  • Realising the importance of lifelong learning
  • Gaining nationally recognised qualifications
  • Understanding the importance of history and heritage


These benefits can by themselves make an enormous difference to the young people who take part.
