Aims

The Cirdan Sailing Trust aims to:

  • Provide disadvantaged young people with the opportunity for self-development from the experience of living and working on large sailing boats.
    However, we do not confine its activities to the provision of sail training charters. An integral and most important part of the work of the Trust is to provide the environment in which Youth Leaders can work with groups in their care.
  • Work primarily with groups of young people from youth organisations across the spectrum.
    We are especially concerned to support leaders who work with the socially, physically and mentally disadvantaged.
  • Provide a well-structured environment in which group leaders can build up fruitful working relationships with the young people in their care as an extension to work done in their home environment.
  • Develop the awareness of the young people to both the thrill of sailing and the need to integrate with each other to remain in control of the potentially harsh environment in which they find themselves.

    Its our intention to make every trip a rewarding life experience in a safe, positive and challenging environment.
