Ocean Youth Trust South

Ocean Youth Trust South exists to offer personal development through adventure under sail to young people aged 12 to 25.

Young crew members benefit enormously from being taken right out of their familiar environment for voyages lasting from two days to two weeks on board our purpose-built 72-foot sail training vessel. They are encouraged to face new challenges, enjoy new experiences, make friends, work as a team, acquire new skills and, above all, develop their confidence. A significant proportion of young crew members each year come from deserving or disadvantaged backgrounds.
