Portsmouth Sail Training Trust hosted local inner-city school St Edmunds for their first ever Aiming High sailing session just before half term. They are looking forward to their next one this week! These sessions are aimed at children who suffer with physical or mental health disabilities, it gives them the chance to try and learn sailing when they might not have had the opportunity to before. They all had a brilliant time despite the rain and are looking forward to coming back. This is just one of the charitable programmes supported by the Andrew Simpson Foundation and with the operation of the PSTT we are looking forward to giving access to sailing and water sports for many more children to come.

“With the recent spell of good weather, we have been really loving getting more and more Portsmouth young people out on the water. Pupils from Ark Charter Academy have recently started an after school sailing club from our base in the Naval Dockyard and they are pictured here (sailing with Instructor Ciaran) enjoying the sunshine in our squibs sailing out of Haslar Marina".

Through this club pupils will learn to sail and achieve their RYA Stage 1 Keelboat Sailing Certificate, but also will learn and develop a whole host of life skills such as communication, team work, building resilience, decision making and problem solving. If you would like to set up a sailing club for your school or group please contact us. Posted May 2018.
