  • Mission statement

    The main objective of the Little Brig Sailing Trust is to provide the opportunity for a large number of disabled and disadvantaged young people (aged 10 to16) to enjoy the challenges of Tall Ship sailing and all its benefits. All the sail training will be day sailing enabling the trust to reach a large number of young people. The Little Brig’s are the world’s smallest tall ships at only 30 feet long this enables the young people to take a full and active part in the sailing, from hoisting the sails to taking the helm. Due to the brigs small size we can keep our costs low and hope to help 1000 young people each year. The Brigs are based on the south coast but they can travel all over the UK. They have recently been to Liverpool and Hartlepool and they will soon be going to London Dock Lands and Preston. In addition to these expeditions the trust also runs regular events and activities which include sailing weekend and evenings.
