The RSP is a registered charity and a volunteer-based Sail Training organisation. All sail training voyages for 14 to 25 year old’s are subsidised and cost only £220. Information on further support is available upon request. Please contact us directly to book a voyage.
We run therapeutic voyages for groups of vulnerable adults and young people, including those with learning disabilities, mental health issues, in treatment or recovery from substance misuse, and those who are living with chronic conditions.
A limited number of corporate and private events help subsidise the sail training voyages
Sail Training is an exciting and fun and adventure for everyone. Sailing as part of a team responsible for the running of the boat will open a whole new world of challenges, skills and learning. You don’t need any previous sailing experience as our Afterguard on board will teach you everything you need to know. As part of a watch, you will work with new people handling sails, helming, keeping watch and cooking fabulous meals. Together you will meet the challenge of the sea.
For me this was my first experience of such sailing and I am hooked, I loved every minute of it and indeed all of the young people told me that they too loved the experience. I was very proud of how the crew, most of whom knew only one other person at the start, came together and worked so well as a team. None of this would have been possible without the guidance of the wonderful Afterguard – everyone was magnificent. David, Youth Leader, Portsmouth
