Our programmes provide real life experiences and an alternative form of education for all young people. Encouraging equality, inclusivity and passion through adventure and challenge. Promoting personal growth, creating awareness about diverse career options, and bringing environmental conservation into the forethought of all that we do.

Our mission through the programmes is to work with young people on:

  • Life skills: To inspire and enable young people to develop through sail training. Increase self-belief, skills, and expertise to overcome personal or social barriers. Allowing them all to lead fulfilling lives, and opening pathways to quality employment.
  • Blue Planet: Finding solutions to climate change and pollution through education and scientifically accurate research. Increasing awareness and providing a platform for universities and marine associations for environmentally beneficial studies.
  • Economic growth: To increase tourism and support local Small and Medium size Enterprises (SMEs), helping to create more local jobs for young people, and creating more funding options to ensure people from all backgrounds can have access to our programmes.
  • Quality employment: Supplying maritime industry careers guidance to increase awareness of all career options. To increase numbers of young people interested in working in the maritime sector and reduce unemployment rates in 16- to 24-year-olds.

To achieve these aims, we have designed our programmes to offer the chance to young people and our collaborators to strive to be industry leaders in Sail Training, Maritime Careers, and Ocean Science.
