Challenge Wales is a sail training charity which uses sailing as a personal development opportunity for young people aged 12 – 25 years using an ex round-the-world yacht: Challenge Wales | Wales’ Tall Ship.
Challenge Wales is perfect for your Residential, giving you the opportunity to try something new, challenge yourself, learn new skills, meet new people, make new friends and of course while having lots of fun! Our activities also help develop team work, communication and confidence skills and remember, no sailing experience is required to take part in any of our adventures. One day we might be racing against the international Tall Ships fleet, the next we might be watching out for dolphins and whales swimming alongside!
Challenge Wales provides great adventure residentials from 5 days to 14 days and in some cases even longer providing an opportunity like no other. Bursary funding is available for all UK residents but additional bursary funding for our longer voyages (including Tall Ships Racing) is often available in addition to cover voyage costs from between 10 – 95%, making it even easier to jump onboard. We always encourage DofE participants to get in touch directly about bursary funding as soon as possible as there are limited funds available.
