An early Halloween brought our last sailing residential of the season to a close. Half term is traditionally dedicated to our returners group, members of our Youth Sailing Scheme and has again been part funded by the Essex Community Foundation.

This is aimed predominantly at individuals who have previously sailed with us as members of schools or other youth groups and who have volunteered or been invited to return independently.

Members have the opportunity to embed initial benefits gained and to start developing traditional sailing skills. This can lead to formal sailing accreditation and could lead to maritime careers. Here is an album of their time aboard last week.
