Tall Ship Adventure
VICTA is partnering with the Jubilee Sailing Trust to give five adventurous souls the chance to embark on a voyage of a lifetime!
Jubilee Sailing Trust are the operators of the only two fully accessible tall ships in the world, on which we are delivering a sail training voyage for blind and partially sighted adults, aged 18 to 29 years. Being on board one of these remarkable ships will be a phenomenal experience designed to help build the confidence and resilience of those joining its crew.
Closing date to apply: 31st August 2018
Date: 17 to 23 June 2019 Age: 18 to 29 years
Duration: 6 nights on board the tall ship
Location: Sailing from Oban to Oban, Scotland
Cost per person: £900 (This can be paid in monthly instalments of £100 or via fundraising). Costs cover accommodation, bedding, all food and wet weather gear while on board the tall ship.
VICTA is subsiding this trip for our participants but you will need to raise the remaining amount of £900 to participate. We would encourage you to fundraise to support the cost of this voyage. We are advertising this opportunity early to give you the chance to raise the funds to reach your target. Five volunteers will also be fundraising for themselves from our corporate sponsors Highfield, in order to provide a one to one level of support on-board.
You don’t need any sailing experience to take part as you will acquire all the skills you need during the programme. To find out more about the voyage and The Jubilee Sailing Trust, please visit the website application page.
