We are grateful recipients of a Big Lottery Fund grant, which goes towards our Youth Sailing Scheme Leadership Programme this year and guarantees three five-day courses for young people, organised by young people.

Last year’s Youth Leadership Scheme programme was particularly successful with winds of every strength and weather to suit all tastes. Everyone had a great time and here is a set of photos with beautiful scenes of sunset and some good examples of working the ship in a breeze.

The Big Lottery Fund distributes half the National Lottery good cause funding across the UK. The Fund aims to enable others to make real improvements to communities and the lives of people most in need.
