Join the adventure and experience the thrill and excitement of sailing on one of our fleet of historic Tall Ships. There is something about sailing on a 100-year-old vessel that brings out the explorer in everyone.
Night passages under starlit skies; seeing whales and dolphins; exploring ashore. There are new places to visit each day – picturesque fishing villages, offshore islands, sandy coves and secluded estuaries.
The great thing about sailing on Trinity boats is that young people need to work together to undertake all of the tasks involved. We do not have to engineer team-building and problem-solving situations – they happen naturally as part of the normal routine and rhythm of life on board.
We aim to create an inclusive, friendly and fun atmosphere yet, due to the nature of being at sea on a working vessel, an informal structure runs through everything that we do. Everyone shares meals together around the big saloon table and in the evening after a day’s hard work there is time to relax, recalling the experiences of the day and enjoying each other’s company, whilst making plans for the next day’s adventure.
By taking young people out of their comfort zone and placing them in a totally unfamiliar environment, our staff and the youth leaders can work with the whole group starting on an equal footing.
The concentrated nature of the experience we provide, coupled with the unique environment, produce marked changes in outlook and behaviour in a very short time. The young people who return at the end of the voyage are very different in attitude from the ones who set out.
