Aims and Objectives

Ocean Youth Trust North uses the ‘Adventure under sail’ to help young people onboard learn a variety of transferable and interpersonal skills that in the short term enable them to take control of their own voyage, and subsequently their own lives.
These skills include:

  • Greater self-confidence
  • Respect for yourself and others
  • Effective teamwork
  • Communication and social skills
  • Developing a sense of community
  • Forward planning and problem solving
  • Leadership
  • Focus and determination

Ocean Youth Trust North is a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) approved Sea School, a member of the Association of Sail Training Organisations (ASTO) and an associate of RYA Sailability, the national body for disabled sailing.
