Morvargh Sailing Project was launched as a Community Interest Company in January 2010. Our mission? To use sail training to inspire and change lives. Since our launch as a social enterprise we have provided many positive youth development opportunities for children & young people sailing on our Tall Ship, Helen Mary R. We use the medium of offshore sailing because it is an unforgiving natural environment that provides a sense of risk and adventure to the participants; whilst allowing us to develop them over a range of disciplines.
Why sailing is good for children!
There is nothing in the world that packs as many life lessons in a single activity as that of sailing. It teaches teamwork, engineering, history, patience, oceanography, ecology, geography, maths and many others all in one fell swoop. Because of this, we believe every child and young person should have the opportunity to learn to sail.
When children and young people start making connections between sailing and their real lives in two or three areas, then these traits develop, start to transfer more naturally and instinctively, and become embedded in a person’s character. There is an almost universal consensus that character as well as exam results, has a significant role to play in shaping young people’s life chances, and these character ‘skills’ are much sought after by employers. (why not read more in our blog arcticle 'Grit and Grades, why fewer exams matter')
Our Tall Ship, Helen Mary R is a natural extension to this philosophy, she requires hard physical work and cannot be sailed without teamwork, communication & resilience, both on deck and down below. Most people come to us with little or no sailing experience but nearly all find it a life changing experience!
Do something life-changing!
90% of young people sailing with us learn something about themselves which will make a positive change in their life; some make profound life changing discoveries that lead to amazing positive change!FIND A SAILING TRIP
