New Hawk 20 proving popular

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.
