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