Ireland’s Sail Training Charity

Sail Training Ireland is a charity that funds the development of young people from all backgrounds and all abilities on the island of Ireland, providing them with the opportunity to participate on voyages on Tall Ships and other sail training vessels.

While they obviously learn about sailing it’s more about learning from the whole experience. The exciting adventure offers the participants the opportunity to overcome fears, push boundaries and take on new responsibilities in a challenging environment.

The experience promotes self-confidence, develops leadership, resilience, teamwork, communication skills and an understanding of diversity. It often has a profound effect on the participants’ outlook and can be life changing.

Interested In Sail Training?

Sail training requires participants to confront many demanding challenges, both physical and emotional. It is an activity that inspires self-confidence and the acceptance of personal responsibility. It promotes an acceptance of others whatever their social or cultural backgrounds and develops a willingness to take controlled risks. For most who undertake sail training on Tall Ships it is a positive life-changing experience.
