In the last 2 years, there have been great improvements made by the Trust with several primary and secondary school children given a chance to sail. Many children from different schools and academies spent 2 days to achieve the RYA level one and the rest of them enjoyed the ‘learning to sail’ day. It was a first experience of sailing for majority of children. The Trust thanked Savills as they sponsored many things, including T-shirts for each child who participated from local schools.
