getting our members afloat.....                                                                




Individuals are encouraged to participate as crew hoisting and trimming sails, steering the boat, assisting with navigation and learning rescue procedures. While therapeutic and educational, the focus is also on relaxation, fun, team work, learning and adventure. Skills are taught by the skipper to individuals who then teach others, emphasising communication skills. Everyone focuses on constructive and positive input. Encouraged to think about their contribution and the impact they have when sailing Onshore everyone feeds back on the challenges of the day, having watched others attempt tasks The constant changing of roles helps to build a sense of empathy with other crew members. The ultimate aim being to engender a sense of support for each other.

Don't just sit here and get on board!
