Portsmouth Sail Training Trust

Some exciting news about the Portsmouth Sail Training Trust programme!

We’re very much looking forward to getting our young people out sailing on the Sunsail Events & Schools Match First 40 Yachts in the new year!

#raisingaspirationsWe're very excited to announce that we have teamed up with the amazing global yacht charter company, Sunsail to help inspire more disadvantaged young people from Portsmouth into sailing.

As part of this new partnership, Sunsail Events & Schools will be giving free access to its fleet and training facilities in Port Solent to enable 125 young people from our Portsmouth Sail Training Trust programme to attend an RYA Start Yachting course in 2019. They will then be working towards completing RYA Competent Crew and RYA Day Skipper qualifications whilst developing valuable life skills to enhance their employability and career prospects.

Autumn Schools Programme

We have been really enjoying the lovely weather in Portsmouth for the start of our Autumn programme here at PSTT. Currently we are working with four schools, taking groups of young people sailing weekly and as you can see from the photo here they are really enjoying being out in the sunshine and on the water.

As we all know, being outside in or on the water and taking part in exercise has so many positive benefits. These young people experience a boost in self confidence from trying out something new, have positive social interactions as they work together as a team to sail the boat, and learn resilience as they overcome the challenges of learning a new sport. All of this – and it’s lots of fun as well!
