– Explore the west coasts of England and Wales while embracing challenges and advancing your sailing skills
– Build up your resilience and independence and experience leadership
– Set targets for development and adopt a positive attitude towards achieving goals
– Opportunities to complete your RYA Competent Crew qualification and the residential section of your DofE Gold Award
– Open to previous TSYT voyagers or those with previous sailing or outdoor learning experience
Join Tall Ships Youth Trust (TSYT) and expand your skillset at sea on a nine-night Voyage of Empowerment from Whitehaven to Portsmouth.
Our Empowerment Voyages are designed as the second stage of TSYT’s three-voyage programme, building on the entry-level skills learnt on an Exploration Voyage.
These voyages support young people to develop resilience, a positive attitude towards challenge, greater independence, mental toughness, decision-making ability, self-reliance and an individual understanding of how they function within a team.
For this reason, this Empowerment Voyage may not be suitable for young people with no previous voyaging or residential outdoor learning experience.
