- To utilise Plymouth Sound, Plymouth’s largest natural asset, for young people and adults
- A young people’s club providing competency, safety, supervision and social activities.
Plymouth Youth Sailing gives opportunities to disadvantaged people in Plymouth. We aim to give our participants skills and ability to help break the cycle of deprivation and see beyond their disadvantage. To do so we provide an activity outside of their normal area of life experience to heighten self-esteem, build confidence and create a sense of achievement and self-worth. The activities we deliver give a chance to try new and fun experiences, to participate regularly in these activities, work as a team, develop skills and knowledge and build group relationships.
The organisation can only deliver the extensive programme through assistance from volunteers, both adults and young people.
We provide a further opportunity through the sailing club for people to maintain their interest and continue to develop their skills and confidence through participation and adventurous water activities.
In this way the club actively encourages members of the community, regardless of age, gender, race or ability to participate in sailing and help them develop their personal and social skills.
