The COVID-19 pandemic presents a real threat to the future of Ocean Youth Trust North. Our office is currently closed and we are not running voyages.  It is possible that we will not be able to sail at all this season.

The current level of uncertainty makes it difficult to predict what will happen and is causing us all considerable worry.  However, we are determined to take whatever action is needed to survive this crisis and return to sailing in good heart and sound financial condition. 

We have an urgent need for emergency funding to give us the resilience to maintain our services to the youth sector and we are taking whatever action we can now to ensure that the most vulnerable young people will get the support that they need from our charity once this crisis is over.

The 2.6 Challenge provides an opportunity for you to get involved and support Ocean Youth Trust North helping us survive for the benefit of those deserving young people who are yet to undertake an Adventure under Sail.

Fair winds to all.  Good luck and thank you.

Two six, heave!
