On behalf of Dartmouth Mayflower 400 the Brixham Trawler Pilgrim will be taking groups of young people to sea for day sails over the next few years. These events are fully subsidised, so there will be no cost to those taking part. The first of these trips is scheduled for Tuesday 1 June 2021. These events will be co-ordinated by the Royal Dart Youth Sailing Trust and Dartmouth Academy.
We can take groups of up to 9 youngsters, aged between 14 and 18, accompanied by at least 2 “responsible adults”, some of whom will be fit and able enough to help to crew the ship. In particular, we are looking for youngsters who have never previously had the chance to sail – perhaps even who have had limited opportunities for holidays or adventure. Perhaps a young carer, or has shown an incredible act of courage or someone who need the chance of a positive, challenging activity.
