In partnership with Tall Ships Youth Trust (TSYT), the Naval Children’s Charity (NCC), is offering a once in a lifetime opportunity for children of Naval families during the summer holidays.

We’re on the lookout for the explorers of tomorrow to take part in a thrilling sea adventure along the coast of the British Isles, from Liverpool to Greenock and then Greenock to Peterhead.

Onboard one of TSYT’s iconic 72ft Challenger yachts, young people aged 12- 25 become an important member of the crew and get involved in all aspects of sailing from ropework and sail handling to helming.

During a TSYT voyage they develop a range of skills, which can be transferred to their day-to-day lives to help them overcome any barriers and thrive.

Working together as a team they grow in confidence and self-esteem and see a significant improvement in their communication and leadership skills.
