Every year we are proud to be able to provide a range of funds that support the continued delivery and development of Sail Training around the world.
You can see learn about the different Sail Training projects we have supported around the world and the real world impacts an adventure under sail for young people taking part. As we continue to provide a range of funds and grants aimed at increasing access to this vital experience, we are thankful for the continued support from donors around the world.
